I have no idea of its worth, but I'd venture to say that it is in the novelty of the bottle as opposed to its contents, which are probably vinegar. Also, the market for single bottles of unsure provinence is very limited. However, I can tell you what I know about it. It's from the first Zionist settlement in what is today Israel, and it was settled by a group of Ukranians who came and found little to do agriculture-wise with the crummy soil, until Baron Edward Rothschild came and helped push them to grapes. They built a cooperative winery, with Rothschild financial help. This port-style wine was made there in 1933 for the export market.
