Wine/price this bottle


Hello my name is Meghan, I have a question about a bottle of wine I picked up from an estate sale last spring.  The bottle is a DALVA PORTO 10 YEARS OLD.  it says it was bottled in 1980 and matured in wood. Is there any value to the bottle? also if not much can I drink it?

Hi Meghan,

I'm afraid you'll probably find it difficult to sell a single bottle of this as most auction houses and merchants set minimum price thresholds above its potential value. (You could try Wine Gavel - - but I don't promise they'd be interested.)

Thus, sorry but it doesn't have significant value.

It should be fine to drink though so that would be my suggestion as selling will incur commission charges, even if you find a route.

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.


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!)

I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
