Hi. I'm having a hard time finding prices for the following wines:

le piat d'or, white table wine, france, no year that I can see. has 71-322 embossed on top of the label.

winterbrook 1993 napa county cabernet sauvignon.

swanson 1990 napa valley chardonnay

ramos pinto porto fine ruby, portuguel, no year that I can find.

loh's estates 1991 riverstone monterey chardonnay.

and here's the real stickler:
carl jos. hoch paradiesmilche bottled in germany, no year to be seen anywhere on the bottle.

due to the lack of on-line presence of the afformentioned wines, I assume they are not worth anything objectively.

Any price estimate for any of the above listed wines would be very helpful.

Thank you for your time-

Welcome to the Board, bb. I can help on a few.

Winterbrook is a Modesto based winery (Gallo country), and most of their fruit is Central Valley sourced. The 1993 vintage was a fairly early maturing one. No real value.

Swanson makes small amounts of Chard from their vineyard on Oakville Cross Road. Fourteen years is probably a bit too long for this wine to be very much alive. No real value.

Never heard of Loh's Estates, but the Riverstone vineyard is owned by J. Lohr. The J. Lohr Riverstone Chard currently retails for about $12 to $14, and are best drunk within about 5 to 6 six years from vintage. No real value.

Hopefully another of the board's denizens can help with the rest.

The rest of the stuff is of no value, probably not even drinkable.
