Could those on the attendee list please re-confirm attendance and email or PM me a fair price for the bottles they are able to contribute.

Financial re-balancing will apply so those with little or nothing to contribute will be contributing in £££.

Thanks
Derek

Reconfirming please. The Ck70 I have is mid shoulder and possibly not of the quality that is required for a tasting of this magnitude and importance so it would be better if I adopt please, as I don’t have another bottle to offer other than a 1991, which I don’t think will be required.

I have fifteen bottles of Co70, so can easily spare one - all have levels in neck.

I can reconfirm and having checked only have the Ck63 as it turns out. Have PM’d the cost.

Thanks to those who have responded so far. More please!

Just to clarify what I meant by "financial rebalancing":

My intention is to agree a fair price with the donor of each bottle. The total cost will be calculated using these prices and equivalent credit given for the £ value of the bottles. There will then be an exchange of cash amongst the group to reach a position where everyone has contributed an equivalent amount in £ or Port.

So, if the average cost of the bottles works out at £200 and you donate a bottle worth £120 you will also need to pay £80 into the fund to allow those who contribute a greater value in Port to be compensated. Those with no Port to give would pay the full £200.

The £200 figure is a guess, please don't rely on it. The actual figure will be made known once I have all the prices in.

Thanks guys.

This is starting to take shape so I will send something out to the attendees in the next few days.

Just one question: wasn't it supposed to be coming home? :roll:

I now have enough data to suggest that the cost will be in the region of £240 per person, excluding food.

I will confirm the actual cost to each person as soon as possible.

When do you want to be paid? Soon has the advantage of compelling decision by the indecisive.

I don’t have the details to hand but my immediate reaction suggests little ‘inflation’ since 2008. I haven’t compared the line up, bottle condition or vintage though!
