I am afraid I will now need to withdraw from this wonderful tasting opportunity. All yours Mr Carter.
Thanks for the update.

Tony is promoted.

As it is now almost 100% certain that we won't be able to have this tasting on the planned date, I'm proposing that it moves to Tuesday 20th October. I'll confirm this with B&F once it reopens, but suggest we go with this for now.

I'll update the header to reflect this change.

Will assume that all attendees are still available unless told otherwise.

Following some discussions with other attendees have decided to hold off on this until we're in a position to more comfortably hold a tasting for 14 people and all are happy to attend.

May need to slide this into 2021, but will keep updating as would obviously be more appropriate to do it in the 350th anniversary year.

Good plan.

I suspect it will need to be next year given likelihood of current Covid progression and restrictions. I would certainly prefer to push it back in order to able to hold a deep Warre vertical as intended, even if that means it is not this year (which doesn't necessarily preclude a smaller event this year as well, but I would suggest saving the rare bottles for the full event - which might be both necessary as well as pragmatic, to achieve such a line-up).

If the 2020 Olympics can happen in 2021, then Warre’s birthday can. So I agree.

An excellent point. 2021 it (probably) is then.

I could make the June date, but maybe able to attend a future unknown date so please add me to the reserves too.

Edit: meant to say couldn’t make the June date

Have added you to the reserve list.

Obviously subject to future rules, but have been thinking that we might want to extend this beyond 14 people. There's already a few people on the reserve list and potentially considerably more than 14 bottles available. Let's see what happens...
