Question
We have a full bottle of this wine with the basket-weave bottom.  The basket has some breakage, but is basically intact. Any idea of a value?

Answer
Hi Linda,

I'm afraid it's difficult to see any value in this as it would only be lawful in the US for you to sell this to a merchant - for resale - or via an auction house but the potential value of a single bottle wouldn't reach the minimum thresholds they all set.

It wouldn't have been a costly wine originally and wasn't intended for long keeping so I'd be surprised if it were still a pleasant drink. I'd keep it on display if the bottle is decorative.

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.
