Croft Vintage Port 1970

Post by SarahRob » 17:16 Fri 16 Aug 2019

I have a dozen bottles of Port to sell which belonged to my late father. It’s still sealed in its original wooden crate. It’s been stored in the cellar since forever!! Value? Anyone interested? Do I open the crate?
Also 8 immaculate bottles of Graham’s 1975. Value for that? Thank you

Welcome to the Forum! Please read our advice to buyers if you haven’t already done so. Where are you based? The good news is thau you’ve potentially a good Port from an undoubtedly great year. However, I would suggest that you jemmy open the crate in order to inspect the contents as the outcome of this will affect the valuation.

Depending on the outcome of the above, I may be interested but will PM you further.

Sarah, it would also be of use if you could let people know roughly where you are located. Thanks.

I’m in Lancaster, just off the M6. I’ve opened the crate, one bottle is completely empty and the cork inside and one is a bit damp around the collar and level just below the neck. The other 10 are pretty perfect, labels a little tired as to be expected for their age but the wax seals are immaculate
