1985 Warres vinatage port for sale

Post by JimothyC » 12:33 Tue 17 Nov 2020

Good morning,

I am selling an unopened wooden case of 1985 Warre's Vintage Port. I have owned the port for 25 years and it has been in a cellar the whole time. I am looking to sell the port for £950. For any questions or photos please email me at James.s.cotton@outlook.com.

Many thanks,
James

FYI, Wine Searcher is showing £58.20 a bottle. So your hoped-for pricing of £79⅙ is very optimistic.

You should also say where the bottles are, geographically.

It's available in London for as little as £49 per bottle in bond, and in the US for $75 (£56.65).

Agree with jdaw1. Corney & Barrow have an owc for £720 retail, so a £20 per bottle uplift is somewhat optimistic.

Many thanks for your feedback. From the research I have done I have seen that cases vary from £650 to £1200. As I have owned the port for 25 years and because I know it has been stored in a cellar throughout this duration I priced it towards the higher end of the average.

The port is currently stored in Northamptonshire. I am, of course, open to offers.

Many thanks,
James
