I have no Spanish wine in inventory. If I find something interesting in my travels I'll grab it.

If at all. You do have a history.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I don't know what we'll bring yet, either on the wine or food front. That usually gets decided relatively last minute.
Although I do know we won't be bringing sushi or cold cuts or tuna or raw milk cheese.

I too have 2.5 cases for Ron. Ron is holding 2 each of Wellington Chard's and Estate Syrah's for me, and 2 SH Napa Red Blends for Sparky (bought on my account and traded to Sparky for the 2 SH's he has for me). Advice for Ron - Home Depot rents trucks for $20 for 6 hrs...

Sparky you have 5 bottles for me - the 2 SH's and 3 BV's. Let me know if you need to be reminded of the specific wines. I have 3 bottles for you - all BV's from Ron's latest club purchase. Agree?

I have a Spaniard for Cortot.

I also have a Corison for Java, if he'd ever show up at one of these shindigs

I have more than 2 bottles for you, I think. Two Chablis and 1 Andremily, at least.

That's as far as I can think right now. Afraid wine will be a last minute call. I will plan to bring chocolates.

Sounds about right. The BV'S are right handy to get. I will try to make time this week to dig for the SH's.
