We have never attempted a vertical of Warre Cavadinha.† Surely we should.‡

Cavadinha is a rare large-shipper not-first-name brand. Entry might need to be restricted to those with bottles.




† We have verticalled full-declaration Warre: on 06 Oct 2021; on 24 Sep 2012 versus Fonseca; and, spoilt by dirty decanters, on 02 Oct 2009.
‡ Multiple second-brand/SQVPs are missing from our record, I seeing only Malvedos, Guimaraens, and a planned Terra Feita.

I’m interested, but don’t currently have any bottles - I can try to get one nearer the time though.

Am also up for the Vargellas tasting, as will be Alex M. if he is available. Probably can't do this Cavadinha tasting.

I only have WC2001
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

Is this going to go ahead? With the industry guests?

I ask as I have an early start and a long day of work (yes, I know I’m retired) the following day.

Food orders please (menu, current draft of food order).

I am checking with the guest.

Neil has already sent me his bottle prices (generous — doffs hat). Please could others do so.

Sorry, I can’t make this any more, please remove me from the attendees and offer up my place. I wasn’t down to contribute a specific bottle, so hopefully straightforward.
