Re: Port for sale by retailer

Ocado has Noval 10YO with one third off, at 16.99. Waitrose Cellar has it 20% off at 19.99. I’ve had this a lot recently and really like it.

Invite on way. Does anyone have a clue who sent the invite for 6pm? It is a forward of the invite for our previous virtual tasting, with the date changed.

Re: Virtual Tasting #11, Tuesday 15 September 2020

Folks, I'm likely to be quite late joining so I'll make sure the Zoom gets opened and I'll join as soon as I can.
