Can anyone let me know who the producer might be. Unfortunately no selo:

No clue. The house on the label looks like every other house in the Douro.

Hi Axel,
From the look of that bottle, I think I was one of the bidders against you (if you got these at a recent auction that is). Good to see a true portlover got them! :D :tpf:

Hi Alex,
That's an excellent idea! :D Now I just have to try if I can work it out at work (need to get off early) and find an affordable hotelroom in the neighbourhood for the night. If I can make it, I would like to bring along a guest (don't know who yet), would that be ok?

Could you take a couple of photos and post them here? Will make it much easier for folks to help with identification.

The LB is a basic ruby Port and I'd assume so is the Graham's. Basically worthless from a money perspective. They probably would still drink sorta ok but considering these are around 40-50 years old and a basic Port to begin with don't expect much.
