Re: Wine Auctioneer

There are a couple of high-resolution photos on this Lot page on our website: https://www.wineauctioneer.com/lot/3381/mystery-bottle-assumed-1910-vintage-port - Free to look and no obligation to register or bid. I think the ...

Re: Wine Auctioneer

Everyone loves a good mystery, right? How about this mystery bottle then??? The only identifying mark is what remains of the number 10 to the right of the cap-seal, in worn orange-red wax - assumption is a 1910 Vintage Port. In the absence of jdaw 's new book, can anybody identify further??? :990066...

Re: Bad News if You're Shipping Port in the EU

We use DHL a lot and have been told that something might come into effect in future - related to Brexit, and as with everything in this regards, nobody knows what situation will be and/or what will become full/normal practice. Have heard mention of a couple of queries, but very small minority of shi...

Re: Graham 2000 and 2003 - 12/75 of each OWC

Hi Alphaarktos, Not to repeat my thread of posts (Selling Ports > Wine Auctioneer), but we conduct bimonthly online wine auctions. We do frequent collection trips down around London, on which we have a number of customers whom we meet at Newport Pagnell Services to uplift/drop-off wines. If you woul...

Re: Wine Auctioneer

Dow's 1963 is one of those benchmark Ports against which other producers and vintages are judged. An outstanding year which continues to be enjoyed by the lucky few. www.wineauctioneer.com/lot/3380/dows-1963-vintage-port This bottle features the label for the London wine merchants Hedges & Butler Ltd.

..if nothing else, I can gaze longingly at the photos you post and admire pictures of wines I am unlikely to ever own.
AHB, how do you think I feel??? Surrounded by all these wonders in my physical presence every day (they tempt, they tease, they defy!) :shock:

Wine Auctioneer

I recently joined the forum due to its overwhelmingly valuable source of information and clearly passionate group of Port lovers - this is definitely a forum I want to be engaged with! Upon then taking advice of JDAW1, we agreed that I start this thread of posts - which I hope everyone will find equ...

For the interest/temptation of anyone with exquisite taste (and deep pockets)... Released in 2014, this 130 year old Tawny Port is from one of only three remaining barrels, of the 1882 vintage, personally purchased by Andrew James Symington (founder of Symington Family Estates, Graham's parent compa...

Re: Warre's 1977 Vintage Port for sale (Valuation & Advice?)

Hi Gus, I'm the director of Wine Auctioneer. We've sold a couple of Lots of Warre's 1977 Vintage Port (and have another Lot in current auction). Based on our sales history, I'd suggest likely selling price of approximately £50 per bottle. In terms of condition, labels do fall off, that's natural and...
