Once again it is time for me to share a bottle of 1965 VP with friends to ensure I live for at least another 12 months.

Default food orders will be assumed unless special requests received.

Please come and join us to enjoy some nice Vintage Ports in good company.

I’ve no idea how I will negotiate permission but seems like the perfect night for a 70 VP from my perspective! Count me in.

Thanks, guys.

If happy to go sighted could you please announce which VP you will be bringing to allow JDAW to do what JDAW does?

Thanks

Life is such an ever changing complication at the moment. I would love to be there to celebrate another fine year for DRT but it seems unlikely that will be possible. Could I please go on a reserve list for now just in case I manage to get a pass.

It might actually be chance for my first meeting. Can I be placed as a reserve for the time being?

Unfortunately cannot make it - big week prior with ProWein, where I will be opening numerous bottles of Vintage Port from the 60s to ensure to live at least another decade...

Have fun

After taking council from DRT, please put me down for a yes. First time doing something like this - considering bringing a 1980 Smith Woodhouse.

An excellent decision, and the SW80 will be a very welcome addition to the line-up, thank you.

I have no ’65s. Would you be excessively offended by a Fonseca 1966?

Don’t have two. OK, I’ll choose something else: 2×G80; or 2×RP94?
