Value of Australian Fortified Wine

February 4, 2013
Question by: Dennis, Adelaide, Australia


Could you please tell me the value of a bottle of Hardys Tawny Port bought out in the year the Adelaide Crows won their first grand final in  the AFL (approx 1997)?


Hi Dennis, Just as sparkling wine made outside of Champagne, France, is not strictly "Champagne" so fortified wines made outside of the Douro region of Portugal are not strictly "Port."   As makers of true Port here in Portugal, and not active in the secondary market for Port or any other wines, Symington Family Estates are not well placed to help you on this query.  We would suggest you contact a specialist wine merchant or auctioneer in Australia who could advise you on the secondary market for these wines.
