"Novice is not the word for myself at this point. I am a total beginner but that doesnot meant I can educate myself on wines. My point is that I have this wonderful Foncesca - Vintage Porto 85 and I would like it if anyone out there would tell me a little more about the quality before I sell the wines. These wines that I have were just a mistakeable spontaneous wine spree I went on when I was upset. Now I need to sell. I also have a Limited Edition (5 bottles)that I purchased at an auction at The Rio in Las Vegas - that I need to sell. Any suggestions? Hope for a hint, advise and more."

"The 85 Fonseca is a wonderful wine and I would not sell it unless $$$$ is a priority right now. Let it age 10 more years then try one.

If you must sell, go to and sell the wines there - the price received is usually very good, plus you can see what prior wines sold for."

"This might just be a technicality, but is this a "tech tip". I think you should have a system that allows you to shunt posts into a more relevant topic and notify the postee (does such a word exist?) of this by email."
