Default Any wine collectors out there. What did i find?

Found two bottles from 1977 in some of my grandmother's stuff that was stored at my parents basement. Here are pics of what they are

That second one looks to be a German white made by budweiser's anheiser. Se how it says Mosel saur ruwar or something like that? Also the qualitatswein means wine. You should email Budweiser to find backstory. The other looks less wine like by the label. Does it have a cork or beer cap? Can you take a clearer pic of the labels?

Liebfraumilch is a white semi-sweet German wine

BEREICH BERNKASTEL (be-rike behrn-kahst'l) - This wine has a distinctly
smooth and elegant flavor. The aroma has a pleasant floral character that
adds complexity to its full bodied flavor. lt is a special blend of the
Muller-Thurgau and Riesling grapes produced from famous vineyards around the
Bernkastel district.

LIEBFRAUMILCH (leep-frow-milsh) - This wine is pleasantly fruity and smooth
with a flowery bouquet that covers a trace of boldness underneath. By adding a
small amount of the Riesling grape to a base of Muller-Thurgau and Silvaner
grapes, this wine achieves a crisp taste unlike any other Liebfraumilch.

Do you think they would still be good? Been in climate control the entire time. Are they worth anything ?

In very general, white wine doesn't last as long as red. Chances are, they are past their peak. What you can do is, google some fine wine and dine restaurants in your area and talk to the sommelier that works there.

Just drink them yourself. How often do you get a chance to drink a 35-year old bottle?
