If we need to lose some port, I would suggest losing duplicated port - either the magnum or tappit hen of Graham (or Warre, if that's also duplicated). Personally though, I'm happy to keep everything in the line up and if there's any port left in my G77TH I'll take it back home with me when I take the "empty" back.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994

CMAG has just enquired whether there might be a space at the table for him.

I don't believe so as with the addition of Julian's guests we are back to our usual maximum of 14 (even without Mrs W) but as organiser, I'll leave it to Charles to provide the final say.

I am speaking with the B&F (Luke is out today) to see if we can move to the 'bread ovens' if so there will be room for Mrs W and CMAG.

We have lost a Mag of SW and W, and I am keen that we keep all shippers regardless of numbers, I have the W does anyone have a Mag of SW to hand?

If no-one else does, I have a mag of SW77 available.

I'd be happy to lend you mine and for you to return it when you have chance to access your mag later in the year.

Thank you. We have a plan, and, more importantly, a magnum of Smith Woodhouse 1977.

Excellent progress.

I'll have duck liver pate to start, grilled scallops and bacon (no chilli please) with a side of triple cooked chips as my main and something for dessert.

I have confirmed CMAG's attendance.

Would you mind updating the list on the first post of who is contributing which bottles please?

Thanks.

I'm struggling to see when I might be able to deliver my magnums / tappit hen to the B&F before 1st Feb, but I will try.

Who can print the placemats, at least partly on A3 which is then to be trimmed? (Glasses pages to lose 69.7mm ≈ 2.74″ from right-hand side.)
