Re: Quinta do Noval - Vertical tasting in Germany, 17 Feb 2018

Send me a list of names for the placemats.

Draft of which at www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180217_Noval_Leverkusen.pdf, doubtless with many errors (including the fact that the twenty-one bottles will be drunk by the only attendee).

Re: Weds 14 March 2018, SQVP or a mature LBV

Will check with SWMBO = HI.

I note that the LBV must be ‘≤1989’ mature, but that there is no such requirement on the SQVP.

Is Noval SQVP? NN? V89? GM?

Could we swap the S82 and Ch82 so the two Sandeman wines are next to each other?
Placemats: preferred to swap the two ’80s: if you object, will do your plan.

Ten glasses can squeeze onto US Legal. Alex: will you be able to print onto 14″×8½″?

Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

Alex: how spacious is Bar Douro? Will we have room for 2×A4? Currently I have squeezed seven bottles onto a single A4, but when Derek reveals his ’82 that will become eight, for which a single A4 is insufficient. How tight are things?
