1952 Affentaler Spatburgunder Rotwein Monkey

Posted by teagan65, Mar 25, 2009.

I have an unopen bottle of this - is it worth anything???

Wow that is a rarity but it's only value will most likely be as a collectible bottle. It's a fairly well known Pinot Noir from Germany. I hope some one else will chime in here as well.

Is the bottle dark green with a painted brown Monkey on it?

Are you sure it is the vintage? The "Affentaler Winzergenossenschaft" who makes the wine was founded about this time. What exactly does the lable say?

If it is really a 1952 vintage I doubt that it is still drinkable.

It's definately not drinkable - but it is 1952 - I found it at an antique store in Chicago where it was distributed from

You could contact Affentaler and ask if they wanted to buy it for their Museum: :)
Seriously, I don´t think if its worth anything (if so maybe to a very special collector), but as it ist a beautiful bottle I just would hang on to it and use it as decoration.
