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.
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!)
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
The infinite variety of wines.
To keep filling gaps in my knowledge and to help others to share the joys of discovery and the pains of disappointment.

Sometimes the price and value of wines is driven more by marketing hype than by quality.

Hi Maciej, I'm sorry but I don't thnk anyone would want to buy these. The Mateus is long past its storage life, has a poor level and was only a low-value rosÚ in the first place. There is no collector
Hi Maciej, Metaxa is a blend of brandy and muscat wine, which results in a sweet, liqueur-style drink that's popular with some people and is often brought home as a holiday souvenir. I'm not sure
Hi Cage, I'm not sure if any RosÚ d'Anjou is still marketed under the Alex Lichine name as I don't see it listed on the company website ( http://www.alexislichine.com/history/?lang=en) but others are
Hi Dave, I'm sorry but 'probably undrinkable' is putting it gently. Few Chiantis are made to keep longer than about 5 years so there really isn't any possibility of pleasure from drinking them.
Hi Dave, I agree but it would require research beyond my field to find if TFB had a son (TAB) who joined him in the firm. I don't think this is modern labelling but I can't read the text so please
