You can say goodbye to wines from 1969, which was a poor vintage year. 1970 was a pretty decent year, and IF the wines were stored impeccably, and from a top house, they MAY still be alive.

Is there an online site somewhere that lists the values of old wines? We have a 1980 bottle of Beringer's Cabernet Sauvignon and the closest I have gotten to finding a value online is that a restaurant is selling a 1999 bottle of this for $190. Being that our wine is 19 years older than that, is it apt to be more value or will it have turned to vinegar? Thanks!

Hi Joanie and welcome to the board. There's a sloght chance, IF the wine has had PRISTINE storaoge the wine may still be drinkable. Restaurant pricing and retail are as different as nite and day. Also people who buy older wines are reluctant to buy single bottles unless from a spectacular vintage and producer. Have some friends and open that sucker. Have a stand-by bottle. Good luck. WW

Thanks, WW. I will be sure to come back here and tell you how it was. I am very curious. I never drank a 26 year old wine before.

Have a spare bottle as standby just in case. Good Luck! WW
