A very good idea. I'd like to come, but only have Warre and I see Jasper already offering that, so I would have to adopt please.

Would a Fonseca 1966 be welcome?

† Yes yes, of course, even if there were already several F66s, another would be welcome.

I’ve got Gould Campbell
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.

Could we get a date in the diary for this? Perhaps late June — week commencing 24 June?

Second half of June no good for me - sorry.

Would it be wrong to do it in May?

I would suggest not May.

We have the Broadbent tasting on 1 May. 23 May is Victoria's 200th tasting. 27 May is the Bank Holiday and half term week (which might be difficult for some and easy for others).

July? August? November? We have nothing in any of these months yet, but have the Messias tasting to drop in somewhere.

We haven't mentioned early June? Either of weeks starting Jun 3rd or 10th might work? (agree May not viable)

Early June would be good for me, otherwise suggest going for late Sep when it might be cooling down again?

June works for me. Early July and early August don't. Sept OK.

Late September wouldn't work for me. Early June might be cramming too much into the six weeks from 1 May to 17 June.

I'd prefer October or November - now it's up to the organiser to choose a date...
