Price of a Specific Port Wine

March 15, 2013
Question by: William, Duluth, MN

Q:

What is the price of a 750 ml bottle of W.&J. Graham's 1980 Vintage Porto bottled 1982?

A:

Hi William, It may sound odd, but actually, we cannot tell you what the price "should be" for this or any of our Ports, for the simple reason that local sales taxes as well as customs and excise duties affect the prices of Port.  Every country, and in the USA every state, has a unique local regime of taxation for alcoholic beverages which can vary according to the levels of alcohol and many other factors and which can sometimes as much as double the cost of a bottle of wine.

Your best bet is to use a wine pricing site such as Wine-Searcher and then have a chat with your local fine wine merchant.  When looking for an older Vintage like the Graham's 1980 Vintage Port you may also want to contact any local auctioneers that deal in fine wine.  Finally, If you have any trouble sourcing this wine, our US importers and distributors, Premium Port Wines, will be glad to help you.  The PPW Contact page has all the contact details of local distribution partners as well as PPW's own regional managers.

Finally, particularly if you are looking at purchasing at auction, you may want to look at our article about Purchasing Vintage Port for more information and guidance.
