Hi,

as I am booked on the first flight out of Heathrow to Frankfurt for business the day after this tasting I will leave fairly early or even have to drop out if it does get messy at work. Sorry for the short notice; I did not have a lot of choice here.....

regards

The placemats updated again.

Please could our organiser ensure that we will have enough glasses for nine people and eleven Ports.

Hi,

apologies but I have to drop out of this tasting as work matters developed in an unfavorable way. Enjoy!
