If I recall correctly, 3rd Jan 2023 is a rail strike day. If so, that would preclude my attendance.

Sorry.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Surely you’ll manage more than 14 bottles between the 2 of you?

Will there be an opportunity for us to join you remotely by Zoom, WhatsApp, Teams or whatever?
