9th March 2010 - Crusting Pipe - Bring a bottle of Port

Post by WS1 » 00:10 Tue 02 Mar 2010

After our fantastic Vesuvio tasting I thought it also would be a good idea to have again a "true" offline. Not sure if this is gonna fly especially since the Malvedos tasting is coming up soon but please let me know if you are interested to join in at the Crusting Pipe in Covent Garden on the evening of Tuesday 9th March 2010 enjoying some Port.

When: Tuesday, 9th March 2010, 18:30pm.

Where: Crusting Pipe, Covent Garden, London.

Theme: Bring a bottle of Port to share.

I might be able to make this but it depends where I need to be on the 10th. Please put me down as a possible :wink:

Is it OK if I bring along a complete horizontal of 1945s, three special guests from the port trade and 6 people we have never met before? :lol:

Excellent idea, Wolfgang! Way to show leadership.

Count me in (subject to the discretion of my boss).

Hi Woolfgang

I would love to attend this true offline....or 1945 horizontal and meet new people as well as folks in the trade...I will bring a bottle anyway just in case DRT has to retract his very kind offer :lol:

If it's OK with you guys could I be added to the numbers for this one.
I'll bring a port decanted and blind, ready for consumption for all. (I take it we are discussing Vintage port here).
If we go with a horizontal 45 then great but if not I'll bring a Vintage that is hopefully up to the task.
Hope to see you there, cheers chaps.

I'm now confirmed for this one.

The 1945 thing was a joke :roll:

Bring a bottle of VP wrapped in tinfoil sounds like a good theme to me :wink:

Looking fwd to see Darren again!

I'm in for the Random Tasting. Any guidance or is it literally just bring a bottle of vintage port?

Hi Alex,

must say have not decided what I will bring, but it will be highly likely one of the bts I want to try or a bt where the levels indicate/tell me "I want to be drunk". Since tinfoil is involved we should also leave the excitement in. :wink:

It will be vintage Port :wink: :lol:

Good news is I booked the boardroom in the crusting pipe for Tuesday for us today. :D

Excellent. Apologies for the tardiness in replying! Just to check, do I need to bring anything other than myself and a bottle of port?

A pen and about £30 to pay for corkage and dinner. Also worth warning you that TCP do not have the best glassware in the world so if you like drinking from proper port tasting glasses bring some along.

See you there!
