July 21, 2011
Question by: Luuk, Amsterdam


A gift is merely a gift when there's no exciting story behind it. I've bought the Graham's Vintage 1994 for a friend of mine, and of course I'd like to tell him more about the port and its exclusivity. I've found a lot of information on the port such as the tasting notes etc. Could you tell me how many bottles there were made of the Vintage 1994? Also, is it true its value increases every year? Like to hear from you soon. Kind regards
