Though only on the reserves list, my then-to-be-87 year old self would still like to attend.

First post update to add Gerwin to the reserve list and re-confirm interest from Tom and Glenn.

I am not updating the list of ports as their availability will very much depend on who the 14 brave survivors are when we get to 2051.

Perhaps those who have promised bottles could consider bequeathing them to this tasting in their Wills?

Please put me on the reserve list. It will be my 90th birthday that day so will have to celebrate the day before. I don’t have any 2011’s so will have to adopt.

Could we add the fact that it is a Sunday to the title? Have we booked a room at the B&F? Hopefully we will be able to get the Red Room — but I'm not sure what are the opening hours of the B&F on Sunday.

And yes, I am still in.
I had Sunday lunch at the B&F just before Christmas (which was splendid). Their opening hours are 12.00-17.00. With 50+ Ports we may need to start on Saturday and finish on Sunday.

Of those not in bold (and therefore I assume currently missing) I can offer: Quinta da Senhora do Convento, Vista Alegre and Alves de Sousa.

Wait list plus 1 please! Will turn 80 within a few months of this onsite, cant think of a better way of celebrating. My son will be 40 (born in 2011) and will be joining me on this trip as he will be a huge port lover based on the 2011 VP collection collection I have amassed for him.

Getting worried now, still not on the reserve list. Paranoia is setting in, maybe this is only open to members of the New British Empire (MNBE’s) created in 2028 after the war in Europe (NBE won as Europe couldn’t agree on a defence strategy). Despite me acquiring a dodgy bottle of Nacional from a defrocked priest in 2049 (patience will prevail). Will drink it all my own😂

Graham
Graham's The Stone Terraces
Quevedo (2 x 375)
Quevedo (750)
Quevedo (6L)
Vesuvio

DRT is in charge, and needs to handle promotions and relegations. But allow my tuppence-worth: given the scale of the tasting, adding an Imperial would be a brave decision, minister.

I’ve done the opposite: placemats updated with a fuller list of Port, but not yet of people — awaiting decisions from DRT.

Indeed, eight pages of glasses suggests that this should be split into multiple sessions.
