Old Dry Brown Madeira, Marcobruner, and 1837 Chateau Latour for Sale in Bombay during 1845


The Facebook comments about the vineyards of India inspired me to post an historic advertisement for wine sold in Bombay during 1845.  One could certainly drink well with Chateau Haut-Brion, Chateau Lafite, Chateau Latour, and Chateau Margaux listed.  Though the list is heavy on the French wines it also includes Sherry, Port, Madeira, and German wines.
