Dear paul

I read this from you.
Expert: Paul Wagner
Date: 8/26/2006
Subject: Societe Philomatique XIII Exposition de Bordeaux

I have a bottle of wine with what appears to be an old label that reads: Societe
Philomatique, XIII Exposition de Bordeaux,
Nationale/Internationale/Universelle, Diplome d’Honneur..small words that
are difficult to read and then signatures from le Secretaire General and le
President, 1895.  Is there some history behind this?  Is this truly a bottle of
wine?  Does it have any value?

Hi Kathleen:

The bottle you have may or may not be good wine–you haven’t given me
enough information about that.  But the Societe Philomatique XIII Exposition
de Bordeaux did, in fact, meet in 1895, and there were hundreds of awards
given out.  It is possible that your wine was made by a chateau that won one
of those awards, or even that it was given out to the attendees–although I
think that is very unlikely.

What else does the label say?  Is this a smaller label on the neck, or is it the
full sized label on the main part of the bottle?  Those keys will help me give
you more information.

I have the same bottle.
Very small on the label front below.

les Monsieurs Heriteurs de Mr Marguis de Riscalin (?)

The main label is not readable

Hi.  I have a full bottle of 1864 wine.  The label says: Grand Cama De Lobos, produced and shipped by Blandy’s Madeiras-Solera 1864. It has never been opened.  I also have a wooden cask with a wooden cork in the top.  On the front is written GUIGNOLET- FANTAISIE. Can you tell me anything about these?
