Question by: Steve, Kent, U.K.


Hi there!  I've got a bottle of Dow's Quinta do Bomfim 1979 Vintage Port , bottled 1981, sy12574487, how much is it worth?  Many thanks


Hi Steve, Symington Family Estates are not active in the secondary market so we cannot advise you on the saleability or value of your wines. In the UK your best resource 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.

For a single bottle of relatively young Quinta wine you best option may simply be to enjoy it yourself, or it would make a wonderful gift for a friend if you are not a port drinker yourself.   We suggest you have a look at James Suckling's tasting notes on the Bomfim 1979 where he quite liked it, calling it fairly exciting.  You can also read more about Quinta Vintage Port wines in another article under the Port Basics.
