Graham's 1963

Question by: Fiammetta, Pulborough, UK


I have 4 bottles of Graham's 1963 vintage port ; I should like to know the value and if/how I could sell them.


Hi Fiammetta, The 1963 Vintage is a legend, and the Graham's 1963 very well regarded.  In addition to the tasting notes here on the Vintage Port Site, the 1963 is being much talked about in the wine press currently, as it was featured at a recent Primum Familiae Vini event in London - learn more about the event on the Graham's Blog, and two critics' write ups which provide good tasting notes are Jamie Goode's and Anthony Rose's.  This Port is drinking beautifully, we hope you will choose to enjoy it yourself with friends and family.

If you do wish to pursue the option of possibly selling your Port, we cannot advise you on the value of your bottles, as Symington Family Estates are not active in the secondary market. Your best bet for good advice is to contact a specialist wine merchant such as Berry Brothers & Rudd who run the BBX on-line wine exchange, or one of the major auction houses that routinely handle vintage wines, such as Bonham's, Christie's and Sotheby's.

Be aware, any one who might broker or purchase your wines will want more information about when and where the bottles were acquired and most importantly, how they have been cellared since acquisition. To learn a bit more about this, you may want to consult two other articles on The Vintage Port Site: one about Storing Vintage Port, and the other about Purchasing Vintage Port which gives the buyer's perspective on the risks of buying wine in the secondary market or at auction.
