"White Label" Warre's

December 30, 2011
Question by: Cat, Chichester, England


This Christmas we decided to open the very old bottle of port that came from my mother's aunt when she lived in Portugal in the 1950's but we were interested in knowing more about it. It only says "White Label No. 1" and 'not for sale' (in Portuguese) with 'Warre & Ca. Lda. Vila Nova de Gaia' on the label. There's no other information except some markings in the glass on the bottom of the bottle, although the label has the same look as the Warre bottles from the 1950's, so I was wondering if there was any way of finding out which year it actually came from?

September 6, 2011
Question by: Guy, North Carolina, USA


Hello,  I bought a bottle of 1934 Warre's in about 2002 as an investment. It seems the market has deteriorated and its worth about the same as I paid for it. I'm looking for your guidance if you think this is still work drinking in the next year, or is it more of a curiosity and way past its prime. Thank you.
