Yes please, I would like to come along. I like the three fives idea...could be fun picking shippers that show well on each of the 3 vintages. I seem to recall Cockburn 85 is not a champion...

Alex. Very interested as Malvedos is one of my favourite SQVP. As an alternative idea (and I think you know why I suggest this!) how about 1986 v 1987?[SMILING FACE WITH HEART-SHAPED EYES]

Now that is quite an interesting idea. We have the Malvedos and Vargellas - what other pairs could we put together?

I wonder if we could find any crusted or LBV pairings. Or are there any pairings that arise because of subsequent corporate mergers?

Alex - please add me as a reserve; I know I will be very busy in March, but it would be good to meet up with Henry again if a spot were to become available and the date turns out to be possible.

Henry has now confirmed that he will be in London on the evening of Monday 2nd March.

I have amended the initial post. Now that we have confirmed the date please would you post to confirm that you are still able (and wish) to attend.

Thanks.

Great. Yes, please confirm me. If anything comes up I'll let you know straight away but for now this is a priority for me!
Are we still thinking of the Bung Hole? Or will that be revised?
