A Vertical of Cockburn Ports
Due to the surprising number of requests that I have had with questions on this tasting, this far in advance of the date, I have decided to start a thread with the details of the event so as to allow people to make arrangements and book a seat at the table.
There will be a limit of 12-14 people so as to ensure that tasting samples from a single bottle don’t get to be too small. 14 people means that you get the equivalent of a miniature bottle of port as your tasting sample.
Cost of attending will be a share of the costs of the event (corkage, glass hire, service - around £40 per person), the cost of food (£15-30 per person, depending on menu choice) and two bottles of Cockburn vintage ports. The two bottles will be one older bottle (defined as being from a vintage earlier than 1960) and one younger bottle (defined as being from the 1960 vintage or later). Please PM me with your proposed bottles so that I can do my best to avoid duplications. I can also help you to track bottles down if you are struggling.
