Martinez 1987 Vintage Port

Question by: Jack, Great Britain


Hi,  I have an unopened case of port (unsure if it is 12 or 6 bottles) but the size is 41x30x24cm. The name on the outside is Martinez 1987 Vintage Port.  Could I have an evaluation on the lot.


Hi Jack,  Symington Family Estates are not active in the secondary market, so we cannot advise you on current saleability or value of your wines. In the UK one of your best resources is Berry Brothers and Rudd, in London, who manage BBX, an active on line service for private purchase and sale of fine wines. Contact them directly through the site with any questions. You might also consider contacting the London offices of either Christie's or Sotheby's who regularly hold auctions of fine old wines. Be aware that any broker or buyer will want to know more about when and where the wines was purchased, and how it has been stored since then. It may be helpful if you read the article on this site about Purchasing Vintage Port, to give you an idea of some of the issues you will encounter as a seller.  To learn more about the Martinez 1987, consult our Knowledge Base for both the overview of the 1987 Vintage year, and more information about the Martinez 1987 specifically.  By the way, your case is probably 6 bottles of 750 ml each, it should say on one of the end panels.
