Question by: Phil, Donegal, Ireland

Q:

I was wondering how much our bottle of port is worth?  It is a Warre's 1980 Vintage Port, Bottled 1982

A:

Hi Phil, Symington Family Estates are not active in the secondary market for Ports, so we cannot advise you on this.  Bear in mind, any potential buyer or broker will want evidence that the bottles have been cellared properly since purchase; you may want to read our article about Buying Vintage Port for more about the buyer's perspective on this type of transaction.  For advice regarding your particular wine, we suggest you consult a local specialist wine merchant, or one of the auction houses that regularly sell top wines, such as Bonham's, Christie's or Sotheby's.  You may also want to take a look at Berry Brothers & Rudd's BBX, which is an exchange for purchase and sale of privately owned bottles. 

Of course, there is always the option of opening and enjoying the wine yourself, or offering it to a friend.  Warre's 1980 is a wonderful wine, as you can see from the Tasting Notes in our Knowledge Base.
