Question
What is the approx value of a bottle of Quinta do Noval 1970 vintage port and if appropriate via who/ what to sell?
The label says......This vintage port is the product of a single vineyard, the famous Quinta do Noval and is shipped by Quinta do Noval -Vinhos, S, A, R, L, Vila Nova de Gaia. It should be allowed to mature in bottle for some years, and carefully handled and and decanted a few hours before serving.  Bottled in 1972.

I am in the Midlands in the UK.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Answer
Hi Graham,

This is a fine example of a fine Port Vintage so you'd need to pay at least £80 plus VAT to replace it.

I'd expect a specialist wine auctioneer such as J Staker Chadwick's in Abergavenny (http://www.strakerchadwick.co.uk/) to achieve bids of that order if you decide to sell but don't forget to allow for their commission.

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.
