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.

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.
