Question
Hi, I have a bottle of Wedding Celebration Port that I would like to know what it would be worth.

On the front it says:
Wedding Celebration Port
(UK Flag with royal crown on top and the initials C D in a bow at bottom)
This Tawny Port has been selected to celebrate the marriage of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer. 29th July 1981.
750ml
Limited Edition - 12000 bottles only
Miranda Wines
Griffith NSW, Australia
D2814

On the back it says:
This Tawny Port has been specially selected to celebrate the happy occasion. The wine is of very high quality, having won a Gold medal at the 1978 Hobart Show and a Silver medal at Griffith in 1978. It is a blend of 1965/68/69 vintages, 100% Shiraz. Grown on the sandy soil of the Nericon Estate, Griffith

Any Information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I have not been able to find a picture on google but would be more than happy to email if you need one.

Answer
Hi Kelly,

I'm afraid I could only guess what someone might be willing to pay for this - the only realistic definition of 'worth' - but Isle of Wine (http://www.isleofwine.com.au/) might be willing to make an offer as they specialise in Australian 'Port'.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
