Vintage Port for sale

Post by jbrightman » 14:04 Tue 13 Sep 2016

Hello,

My father in law is moving to Portugal and has been keeping his collection of Port for special events along with following a tradition and is now keen to offload them on to me rather than taking them with him. I am happy to drink the bottles of little value, but a good bottle is likely to be wasted on me and so the money would be preferable.

I therefore have:

* Graham's Late Bottled Vintage , 1979, bottled in OPORTO in 1985 and imported by Matthew Clark & Sons Ltd, London, in wooden case.
* Sandeman, Vintage Port 1977, bottled in 1979 - stamped 'The Silver Jubilee Sandeman 1977 Vintage Port'
* Offley Port, Late bottled vintage 1983, bottled in 1989, shipped by Forerester & CA, LDA, Porto Portugal,
* Noval 1981 vintage, bottled in 1986, stamped 'The year to celebrate the oldest alliance - 1386 - 1986.
* Delaforce Sons & CA, Quinta Da Corte 1980 vintage port, Single Quinta, bottled in 1982, 'stamped by special warrant to His Majesty the late king of portugal' x 8 bottles
* Taylors 10 year old tawny port - bottled in 2001 - x 2 bottles

All bottles have been stored horizontally in my fathers cellar and transported very carefully, being kept at a consistent temperature.

Any thoughts, advice /help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Based in Surrey if that helps.....

Thank you

Jason :)

Sorry to bring you bad news, but these are not valuable.

A tenner? Drink it.

Reasonable vintage port, but not rare or valuable. For sale in the UK at £660 per dozen = £55 a bottle. Expect about half retail, ≈£25-£30.

Again, circa a tenner.

You say “vintage”, but do you mean “late-bottled vintage” = LBV? Assuming so, another tenner.

Each worth less than the Sandeman 1977, but more than the LBVs.

A tenner each? A tenner the pair?


Could you drink them? If somebody is willing to take them off your hands as a job lot, where in Surrey are you?

HI Jason,
I know you were looking for a job lot but would you be interested in selling just 1? I am interested in the Noval 81.
Thanks
Malena
