Dow's 1977 Silver Jubilee Vintage Port

Question by: Michelle, Sheering, UK


I have a bottle of Dow's 1977 Silver Jubilee Vintage Port.  Can you please tell me if this has any real value and if so, where I can sell it?


Hi Michelle, The Dow's Vintage 1977 was released with some bottles bearing a special edition label to mark the Queen's Silver Jubilee, but the wine is the same with or without the special label.  Symington Family Estates are not active in the secondary market for Port, so we are unable to advise you on it's resale value.  Your best bet is to consult a specialist wine merchant, such as Berry Brothers & Rudd, or an auction house that routinely handles fine wines, such as Bonham's, Christie's or Sotheby's.  Be aware that you will have to satisfy any broker or potential buyer that the wine has been well stored and likely to be in good condition.

We hope you will consider enjoying this Port yourself, with friends - it is drinking beautifully now, and has the potential to age and develop even further if it is well stored.
