Not likely......

It was made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes in 1861 near Graves in the Bordeaux region of France. What more would you like to know? It's worthless and undrinkable, by the way.

Hi ekeys and welcome to the board. Please excuse the rudeness of some of our members as they were raised by chickens in Okla. It could be they were taken aback by the post as we don't see a lot of 19th century wine questions posted. This bottle could have some curiosity value. Pit in on E-Bay. The ole' Barnum theory could kick in. Good Luck. WW

I'll have you know that I was raised by the finest chickens -- home grown with a nice, heated coop, and plenty of maize.

What WW meant to say was, "Pot in on E-Bay."

Ekeys. You don't have to edit your original message. When you come back to the thread hit the post reply icon and put up your new post. This leaves your original on the board.Looks like you have inherited a bunch of over-the-hill bottles without any commercial values. Again, try E-Bay. WW
