Hi Guys,

unfortunately I cannot make it to the 67 tasting. Wolfgang will bring the bottle of Ck and if the seat cannot be filled, I am happy to pay for everything coming up.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

All best

Hi Axel
No problem - I believe that one space will be filled. The offer of Ck67 is gratefully received.

It looks like there will be one, possibly two spaces opening up.
I would encourage anyone who would like to attend a port forum event to express an interest. I notice that there will be a few "first timers" at the event.

Sadly not - but I do have both English bottled and Oporto bottled Vargellas - worth having both in the lineup, I would suggest.

OK - I shall bring an OB

Interestingly, the label says it was bottled in Oporto in 1970 - a third year bottling.

First Post updated with amendments.
- Guest list modified
- Tv (OB) OB added to the wine list.
- Ms(Col) dropped from the list as it will not arrive in time.

There is also a chance that we may have a unique port from a Symington family bottling.
