Dozens of collectable bottles of wine, some dating back to the 1960s and worth a total of at least $14,000, have been stolen from a Melbourne home.

Thieves broke into the Como Street, Alphington, home on September 16 and took electrical and household items before raiding the wine cellar.

The list of stolen wines includes four bottles of 1962 Grange Hermitage and 10 bottles of 1976 Penfolds Bin 389.

Wine expert and University of Melbourne lecturer Chris Barnes said the value estimate of $14,000 was conservative given the Grange 1962, one of which had $2.50 pencilled on it, was one of the “iconic years” for the brand and would now be worth about $1800 a bottle.

4 bottles of 1962 vintage
