Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

Post by Christopher »

Dear All
This year not only marks an important anniversary of the legendary 1970 vintage but also the 20th anniversary of the
2000 vintage! Where did all the years go?
I think it’s a great time to carry out an appraisal to see how they are getting on. I suspect I need more of this vintage which if memory serves me right was the first vintage I purchased on release.



Venue : The Ovens in the Boot and Flogger.
Time : 18.00 for a start at 18.30

Attendees
  1. CMAG - Croft
  2. RGO - Adopt GC from AHB please
  3. CMAG Guest - Acquire Noval or adopt Noval from CPR please
  4. AHB - Ramos Pinto (Ca, Ck, EV, GC, Mz, QH, RP)
  5. JDAW - Adopt 2 halves of Warre from TC please
  6. MPM - Adopt Ni from IDJ please
  7. NAC - Vale Dona Maria (T, F, V, TVV, VDM)
  8. IDJ - Graham (Ni, V, G, RCV, Da)
  9. CPR - Taylor (F, Ni, V, T, N, BBR, Pd)
  10. TC - Fonseca (Bu, Ck, F, Fd, Hu, Ni, RP, S, V, W)
  11. HADGE - Adopt Vesuvio from NAC please
  12. ID - Offley
Waitlist
  1. Currently no-one
I suspect limit will be 12 but let’s see if there is any interest
More admin will follow in due course but if interested parties could let me know what they could bring that would help. I fear most 2000 is still sleeping in wooden boxes!
Thanks

Dave just beat ID, who would like to attend. I'll waitlist her and, if my first choice guest doesn't manage to make it she can have his seat.

My industry guest is unavailable (our date clashes with ProWein) so the space goes to ID. She will be bringing an Offley, if that is acceptable to the organiser.
