With great regret I will now be unable to join you at this tasting as I have recently been informed that my presence is required in Krakow on the night of the 19th.

Apologies for the late withdrawal. Enjoy!

Sorry to hear that Derek; perhaps you might get a Vodka tasting instead?

Looks like we're all set for Thursday. Food order is complete - could someone make a quick check? All the bottles have been standing at the B&F, and a few have kindly volunteered to help decanting and pouring on the day.

Thanks Julian. Simon is not planning to eat. What could possibly go wrong...

Please let me know

Mike
I dashed out without saying thank you for organising what was a wonderful tasting last night. Undoubtably one of the best I have been to. Wines and organisation were exceptional.
