If a space becomes available would love to attend
Thanks
There are a couple of attendees who are strong maybe/likely. If either (or someone else) drops out I'll let you know.

Great stuff
I feel the recent tastings have been missing my world class palate! 😂

Starter: Grilled flatbread with lemon and coriander houmous
Main: Sirloin (medium rare), chips, plus bearnaise sauce*

*please! (the current menu only lists peppercorn, but please ask if they could still do bearnaise for us as previously; thank you)

Hi, been travelling abroad, sorry for missing your messages. Wonderful as it sounds, I regret I am no longer able to make it to this tasting.
My fault: the placemats still had ’Dia as attending. Who is (or might be) her replacement?
Zak appears to be missing.

If bearnaise is an option, please may I switch my sauce to that?

No starter, medium rare sirloin with fries and green beans / shallots.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Around the edges of the glasses circles, the spacing of “Quinta de Vale da Figueira” and of “Quinta Vale Dona Maria” look a little odd.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
