Boston in February

Postby Al B.     » Thu Dec 06, 2007 10:15 am

If anyone is interested in participating in a Croft vertical in Boston in early February, please drop me a PM. At the time of writing this post, there are still a couple of places free.

The main requirements for attendees will be the ability to enjoy good port and good company and the ability to contribute (either physically or financially) a bottle of pre-1970 Croft vintage port that is not already in the line-up that we have.

Thanks.

I am certainly going to give it my best shot, but can't promise yet.

Alex,

I spoke to Sean & Moses the other night. I am going to do my very best to be able to make it to this tasting!

I'll know for sure within 2 weeks. Hold a spot for me.

Thanks!

Looks like I am in, too!

My wife's comment: "Like you need to do another Croft vertical?"

Mine: "I didn't need to do four verticals of Taylor in November and December either. But this is different."

She did this ----> :roll: and walked away.

Great news. I'm due to arrive in Boston late on the Friday night and the plan is to start drinking around lunchtime on Saturday and keep going at a leisurely pace for as long as required to finish all the bottles.
