Q:

Just curious on an estimate on my bottle of port. It is a Christian Brothers 1969 Vintage port. I have tried to do hours of research....I couldnt find a thing. Just wondering what a ballpark estimate would be on a vintage port.

A:

Hi Megan, 1969 was not a declared year for Vintage Port in Portugal.  As you will see from our 1969 Viticultural Report, we did not declare or bottle any Vintage ports that year.  Other sources such as the Port regulatory body, the IVDP , confirm that no Vintage Ports were declared by any producer that year.  I am also unable to find any record of a Port producer here in Portugal by the name Christian Brothers. 

Is it possible your bottle is not in fact true Port, from Portugal, but a fortified wine made in America or elsewhere?  If so, perhaps a local speciallist wine merchant could help you further.
