One last request. Bar Douro only have around 60 glasses which they can put at our disposal. My maths says that 9 people and 9 bottles needs 81 glasses.

So you have a choice: be prepared to re-use glasses or bring 3 (or more) of your own with you on the day.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Or single decanted, into a proper decanter.

Everything else works for me.

Gents,

There is a chance I will be in London on 18th Jan. I cannot commit to being there but wondered whether or not a gate-crasher with a bottle of something suitable to drink would be tolerated?

I'm happy to pay for and eat a share of the suckling pig if that is deemed to be helpful 🐷
