First time poster.

I own a 1977 Vintage Port by Smith Woodhouse.

Is there any way to find out the value of this port, and also how long can this port be aged for best drinking?

Here is the information on the bottle.

Shipped and bottled by Smith Woodhouse
Oporto
Produce of Portugal

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Rob W.

Hoodinii, welcome. 1977 was a declared vintage year so you should have a delightful port. Winesearcher.com list several bottles at $85 to $100 a bottle. Go to http://www.symington.com/smith/index.htm for more info about Smith Woodhouse ports.
