Question by: Anthony, Dunstable, UK

Q:

I have one bottle of Gould & Campbell port circa 1975, is it worth anything?

A:

Hi Anthony, The 1975 vintage is known for its elegance, but was not anticipated to be as long-lived as the 1970 or 1977 - read the full 1975 Viticultural Report for more information.  That said, if the bottle has been well cellared in dark, cool conditions it should make very pleasant drinking.

Symington Family Estates is not active in the secondary market for Port wines, so we cannot advise you on the value of your bottle.  Bear in mind, the secondary market is strongest for top brand names in the really legendary years, and any potential buyer or broker will want to know how the wine has been stored.  In the UK your best bet for further guidance is to consult one of the big auction houses, such as Bonham's, Christies, or Sotheby's, or a specialist wine retailer.  Berry Brothers and Rudd have the BBX virtual marketplace for wines which have been stored in bond with them, but you may see prices there which give you a guideline.
