Quinta de la Rosa LBV and Vintage Thursday July 8th

As discussed at the recent online QdlR tasting - LBV and Vintage Live tasting @ B&F Time and date TBC I have the following already set aside - it will be easiest for me to supply (in exchange for a donation to charity). There are a few gaps which I might be able to resolve with Sophia. Given the lar...

Re: Auction Prices

Talking to the auctioneers - there are a lot of private buyers out there who are driving up prices. Particularly on wines and ports that are in a good drinking window.

Re: A Question of Label Differences

The last one is a later release of stock from TFP. They were certainly available in the UK up until the end of last year - when stocks sold out.

Re: VWP Blandy’s Madeira virtual tasting 19th Nov

Thanks Simon. Chris (Blandy) is a very charismatic presenter and the idea is to introduce a new audience to Madeira starting with a fairly basic introduction to the main styles. If we run on from this one perhaps progress to colheitas and then Frasqueiras?

Re: Interest in an online tasting with la Rosa?

Yes definitely. I do have some 88/90/91/92/97 vintages. Opened a 92 last week - very good.

Re: 1920 at 100

Re: VE (etc) Day Tasting - Mon 14 Sept

Would you be able to put me on as reserve - 1945 Ferreira Done. If promoted from reserve (which is reasonably likely) might you have an alternative bottle? We've already got a Ferreira 45, and whilst a comparison would be interesting suspect the general preference would be for greater variety. If n...

Re: Quevedo Tasting 2 - 30th July 2020

Interested to get some feedback on the 90ml bottle size. Oscar and I are trying to find a compromise between 5ml (too small) and halves (too much)
