Re: Quevedo Taste at Home - Blend Your Own 20 Year Old Tawny - Online Tutored Tasting 22/4/21

Sorry - looks like we will have to move this again!!!! Oscar had them ready at end of Feb but we have have been let down by our shipper bringing this over. I was hoping that they would arrive this week but customs clearance on all inbound duty goods is taking some time. Will advise when we have some...

Re: Graham’s Single Harvest Tawny Tasting with Charles Symington and VWP

New date will be April 15th just after Easter when Charles is available

Would love to have a tasting on 18th - something Symingtons?
I could ask Charles or Tom if they can make a guest appearance.

Re: Graham’s Single Harvest Tawny Tasting with Charles Symington and VWP

It looks like we might have to postpone a couple of weeks (or more) as there are some issues with shipments from Portugal to the UK. This has affected a lot of things and unfortunately our tasting packs are somewhere in the mix. I’m working with Fells and Symington’s to organise a new date and will ...

Re: Quevedo Taste at Home - Blend Your Own 20 Year Old Tawny - Online Tutored Tasting 31/03/21

Hi Rich I'm trying to cut down on the drinking mid-week so have missed some of the virtual tastings. Best price for this (and the Grahams) is the one on the web - its more of a promo thing - so the margins are quite small. Simon has beaten me again to listing on the thread. There are only 90 packs t...

Re: Graham’s Single Harvest Tawny Tasting with Charles Symington and VWP

Andy - Thanks for the link - I was not aware of this. I do not believe we have had any bottle size issues on shipping - maybe its more of a selling/retail thing. It would make a lot of sense for Oscar to ship the packs direct to the US if there was a critical mass. Does he not have an importer? The ...

Re: Graham’s Single Harvest Tawny Tasting with Charles Symington and VWP

Firstly, Let me declare an interest as I organised the tasting. - all the GSH packs have now gone. I have organized another tasting with Oscar Quevedo for 31 March - this will be a blend your own tawny - he is supplying four components that go into his 20 year plus the final blend. Should be a fun t...

Re: Graham’s Single Harvest Tawny Tasting with Charles Symington and VWP

Is shiping to Switzerland possible? Shipping to the US is possible, so I assume that they can also ship to Switzerland. Unfortunately it is more expensive than the Port to ship it to the US so it doesn't really make sense to do it. :( Oops, no. I went back to look again (thinking that if I ordered ...

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...
