    Right is there any wine connoisseurs on here, or anyone who knows anyone who is? i need to find someone or somewhere i can get some wine valued, i'm gonna try google and what not too, but its always more helpful if someone on here has a clue .

    basically i've gone and got myself 6 cases of a 1961 chateau montrose... and i want to sell it (theres a suprise) but never really having much to do with the old squashed grapes i havent got a clue how to go about it.

    anyone know anything?

    i'm hoping i'll pocket a nice bit anyway. which is pretty much my main goal in all aspects of life.

    so anyone who can help or point me in the right direction. much appreciated.

    maybe i'll try wineworks.com/forum

    Prepare to be robbed Nick. Your house may get ramraided by a matt black soarer sometime soon.

    £130 a bottle, well that wouldnt be bad. but i'm sure people wouldnt pay that from me. maybe if i was a reputable dealer or whatever? but i;m not im a scutter who found wine.


    bon the wine is going into my wine cellar, well my bedroom, so you are going to have to ramraid my house vertically.

    Scroll down for the crate prices. Crates of 6 for like, 3 grand. lol

    Contact some wine merchant/dealer type people and offer them to them.

    er basically i was clearing out my workshop type place/storage place for this guys stuff. basically the wine got cleared out of an old stateley home and then sat around near me for a few years without me knowing,. then i came across it today. asked the guy what he wanted to do with it..he said take it if you want it.

    so thats what i did.

    Thats crazy lucky !

    Do you want to split it or sell it as one lot?

    Why not try an auction if you cant shift it quickly?

    Don't drink it, that could be like, £200 you're drinking. Just take it to a wine place and let them value/taste/whatever it

    reading a little further, price depends on condition of bottles, labels etc. don't bust them open or damage cases. just sell them and buy super bok or some other shit like that. bon is right. you are not a wine bod you prob wouldn't know what you are drinking so don't bother drinking it.

    i'll just sell it as one lot.i'll probably not drink it now. my old man knows a fair bit about wine, but itsprobably much more sensible to take it to an expert

    ive also got a couple of boxes of a 1975 crozes hermitage or some name like that, but that looks abit past it to me. wasnt stored in good conditions

    and a box of 1966Beaune-therons...lousi jadot or something or other

    Nick, be careful how you store them!!!! keep them on their side, and rotate them, or the corks will dry out and it will be fucked!! do not stand them up to store them!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    POW they are on their side. but like i said ive only just found them, i bet the condition of them is pretty fucked. it'd be nice to dream i have stumbled across a little bit of money here, but i just think that they have been in poor conditions for too long. shame

    oh yeh jason. ....xxxxxxxxxxx

    My brother's a wine buff and buys/sells wine for profit... He says contact David or Will Gardner at Nickolls & Perks in Stourbridge. They're a wine broker and will sell it on your behalf for a cut - he reckons if you've never sold wine before it's the best way to get the true value as they'll know what it's worth and will have a list of people that might be interested in it :)

    You can say Jonathan Field gave you their details :thumbs:
