Question by: Ryan, Henderson, USA


I have a bottle of Grahams 20yr old Tawny Porto that was bottled in 2002. I have had it in a wine fridge since I got it 7 yrs ago.  My questions are, should I be drinking this as soon as possible? Has it probably gone bad? Is there any reason to wait to drink?

Question by: Fredrik, Göteborg, SE


I conduct chocolate and wine tastings and was very intrigued to learn that there was a port specifically made to go well with fine chocolate. Since Dow's Nirvana isn't available in Sweden I was wondering if you know of any way that I could get my hands on a bottle or a case to try it out?

Warre's Colheita

July 25, 2011
Question by: Deirdre, UK


I have a bottle of Warre's Colheita 1940, which says it was kept in casks and bottled in 1988.  I also have a bottle of Sandemans, the label says: Sandeman 30 years old Tawny Port matured in wood and bottled in 1990. The bottle is a replica of bottle used in 1790. It was produced to celebrate bicentenary of the House of Sandeman.  Can you tell me if they are good years and where I might be able to sell them?  Thank you.
