The line up has now been confirmed, we have 16 shippers, 18 bottles one of which is a magnum thus not bad for a Tuesday night. (first post updated)

Can people contributing bottles please deliver them to the B&F in advance, I will contact people shortly re sorting the costs.

Current draft of the placemats added to the first post.

Table space will be very tight.

To make more table space, I’ve reduced the space per glass: 15 on A3, and 3 on ½×A4. Please comment whether too small: Circle radius = 118.978pt, so diameter ≈ 3.30″ ≈ 83.9mm.

Unfortunately Dirk can't make this now but has still very kindly offered to provide a bottle of Niepoort. CMAG has thus been promoted from the reserves.

This now leaves us with 'just' 16 bottles for 14 people. Any views on adding some of these to the line up; Kopke San Luiz (Current bottle labelled as simply Kopke, does anyone know if they produced both or just different labels?) Pocas, Ferreira or a special Factory House blend?

Am not aware of a straight Kopke in '77 (but don't know for sure that there isn't).

My choice would be to first include the Ferreira (lovely wine), then the Factory House (as we will likely taste all its components alongside).

I'd also vote for the Ferreira, a very nice wine.

Excellent decision made Ferreira and Factory House added. We have 1 vacant seat as CMAG can't make this, first post updated.


For those attending can you please post your food order, usual menu and a Xmas special to choose from. I will send PM re costs this week.

Have we one Niepoort, or three? Are we at twenty glasses? Has the B&F been told?

If Mike is printing, then the placemats can be on a trimmed A2, which will use less space than A3+A4. Is he?

Just one. I have discussed glasses with B&F and been assured all ok, fingers crossed.

I’ll be flying in from Amsterdam on the Tuesday afternoon, so if I am to print it would need to be Monday.

All checked, looks correct.
Only differences from first post are lack of CMAG in attendee list (but believed correct from above posts), and Ferreira and Factory House are present in ports list with correct supplier, but have not been added against attendees.

Do we have a spare seat at the '77 tasting? There are a couple of people I met yesterday who might be interested in joining us if that is the case.

My food order:
No starter
Roast Turkey main
Probably no desert on the night (but if I have one it will likely be the Lemon and Ginger Cheesecake — if I have one)
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

For my order I'll have the truffle mac and cheese to be followed by the turkey.

Thanks
