Warre 1963 Question

Post by nac » 18:48 Tue 13 Nov 2018

I've just acquired a small parcel of Warre 1963 which has a quite distinctive four-leaf clover (?) design embossed in the foil (photo below).

Does anybody know if this indicates a particular bottler?

It almost certainly does. But I don’t know who. I’ve checked my bottles and don’t have the same stamp.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

No matching image in the VPID I'm afraid - I don't know.
Does the bottle have any other marks or embossing on the bottle?

Maybe it is a secret lucky sign and if you contact Warre they will send you the rest of the pipe!

PhilW - probably won't help, but I'll upload a photo of the whole cap. Nothing else on bottles as they're unlabelled.

That would make it a very lucky four leaf clover :D

Thanks; you can probably guess the next question - may I also add the image to the VPID please?

PhilW - yes, of course.

The image quality is pretty poor, but I can't upload a better image due to the graphics size limit. Could email you the full image if you want?
