Dows 1987 Quinta Do Bomfim Vintage Port

October 12, 2011
Question by: Len, Great Britain


Hi. I have had a bottle of the above stored in its original wooden box for years in a cupboard.  We have just revamped the house and come across this port which my wife wants to drink with her lemonade.  I have strictly forbid this as although I cannot find its value anywhere on the internet, it appears to me as this may be a rather nice bottle and something to only use on a special occasion.  Are you please able to advise.


Hi Len.  I admit I am glad to hear you have forbidden drinking this Vintage Port with lemonade!  If the storage conditions were cool and the temperature fairly stable, it should be in good condition, and I hope you will enjoy it some evening with family and friends.  To learn more about this wine, take a look at the 1987 Vintage Report and click on the Quinta do Bomfim icon at the top of the page to read more about the 1987 Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port specifically.  If you are not familiar with serving Vintage Ports, take a look at the articles under the Enjoying Port tab on the menu above particularly the one about Serving Vintage Port.  Enjoy!
