Warre's 1985 Vintage Port to sell

Post by Freya M » 10:43 Fri 04 Jul 2014

Hi,

I have one bottle of Warre's 1985 vintage port, bottled in 1987. It has been stored by Berry Brothers and Rudd, collected yesterday (3rd July 2014) from London.

I am looking to possibly sell it, could anyone give me an idea of the value?

In the USA about $50-60 (USD). Since you're in the UK, probably less as VP sells for less there.

W85 can be bought retail in the UK for £48, or for £49, and in other places at like prices. Vendors, whether selling at auction or to retail or elsewhere, typically get about half retail.

Have you considered drinking it?

I don't think I'll enjoy it as much! Are there any recommendations on how to go about selling it?

You collected it from BBR. Where are you? Or, where is the bottle?

The bottle is not of great value. I don’t want lots of transport hassle. But if you are not far from Streatham, we could agree a price by PM.
