The two bottles were found in the cellars of a manor house in Gloucestershire.

Isabel Balmer, who works in values, said: "Our wine and spirits valuer has been fortunate enough to sample some of these."

She added: "The vendors have got some open bottles, and he said that it was incredibly smooth and one of the most delicious ports he has ever tasted."

The 146-year-old port goes on sale in September but how much could it sell for?

Staff at Hansons say they wouldn't be surprised if they went for £500-600.
