Interesting that it's on a Friday this year-would seem to suggest a tasting for the Thursday....

Annoyingly, I can't go. I have my last class that day, and I'm introducing a film in the film festival next day.

Agghh. Nightmare. So that takes you out of any tasting on Thursday 21st as well, which I think we were lining up to be a GC vertical?

Yeah, I'll have to get back on this one. It's just impossible for me to do Thursdays / Fridays.

Has anyone noticed how close we are to the date of the BFT and yet the catalogue is not online yet? Could this be because there are some ports being shown which are not yet known about?

How exciting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Catalogue now on-line. One 2014 VP as far as I can ascertain.
