Can I suggest that we add the IB release prices (retail prices) as they become known - it would make an interesting archive to compare against future auction prices.

Passadouro and Pintas. Andresen. Pocas Jr. and Pousada. LaRosa. Quevedo.

Look out for Passadouro - good stuff!

I spoke to many producers the last couple of days and found none of them who will not produce a VP 07. The only one who was unsure was Dona Matilde.

FYI when I spoke to the importers of Romaneira at the Lords Potrugal tasting last month they indicated that 2007 would be declared. According to Tanners the importer is no moer and I have not been able to confirm whether it actually was (the Romaneira web site appears to be oriented to tourist).

To the best of my knowledge based on what key individuals at these firms have said, these producers are not going to declare 2007.

List updated to this point and I have quoted Roy's post above in the header post to keep declarations and known non-declarations together.

I will try to find out about Romaniera through another route :wink:

Although unconfirmed I was told that I would get a strong support from Noval for my german VP tasting next year. I guess that should mean something, but nothing official yet.
