Usual practice is to charge for signing.

Since when have I been bound by usual practice? No charge — just bring to the event a bottle of great Port and the book, and I’ll happily sign.

(My proper ink pen was cleaned and dried and put away about 22 years ago. It has been brought out of retirement, and will be used for signings.)

I have a group purchase to order, but am not sure that all interested have had the opportunity to respond. I leave for Portugal next Thursday.

Safe to wait to place the group order until at least Oct 3, or will orders have closed by then?

I've just listened to the esteemed author on The UK Wine Show ThirtyFifty podcast where he talks about vintage port. Very entertaining and well worth a listen.

There's also a follow up podcast which I haven't listened to yet, where he talks about The Book.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

I was slightly disappointed that neither episode featured the actual drinking of Port.

I was the guest — it was worse for me!

Stock is running low, and sales are about to end. If you have, thank you. If you haven’t, then www.PortVintages.com.
