How much is this wine worth?

So, I went over to my grandmothers house a little while ago, we're neightbors pretty much. And she had this bottle of wine sitting on the countertop, just sitting there with no purpose. I started looking at it, and they told me details about it, and I wondered how much it was worth- so they asked me to look it up on here. It's a 'Imperial Reserve, White Grape Wine- Alcohol 14% by volume (1liter)' and it was bought/made in the early 1980's. Does anyone have an estimate on how much its worth, or if its worth anything at all?

Short Answer: Probably nothing.

Long Answer: The vast majority of wine isn't bottled to age. It's designed to be poured within a year or so and isn't getting any better. Even if it were stored in good conditions (high humidity, low temp, no light, no vibration) it's a non-appellation white at 14% ABV, which means it'salmost certainly a table wine, not one for aging. So it wasn't fantastic in the 80s and hasn't improved, unless this is some rarity that a collector wants for reasons outside fine wine collecting, it's just a curiosity.
