Wine world gone mad

Well, if you had bought one, there’d be some return on investment:

Interesting that Wine Searcher’s algorithm rates it as “one of the most popular wines from Barossa Valley.” Some new definition of “popular”, surely.

Of course, it’s all an enormous exercise in willy-waving. All of the fluff about flying out the winemaker, tungsten tipped bottle openers and silver tastevins - it’s not a wine designed ever to be drunk. Merely possessing a bottle expresses your power and influence (or something like that :frowning_face:). Actually opening it would destroy its value. Of course, you could argue that doing so would show you’ve got the biggest willy of all.

I’m pretty sure we’ve discussed this wine being blasted into space, but now they are speculating that it will fetch a MILLION for it !!! Yes 1MILLION !!
If this isn’t the worlds biggest wine publicity stunt ever … we’ll I don’t know what is :see_no_evil:.

I always think one of the problems of buying expensive wines is that they are in Glass bottles.
I remember hearing of someone going to New Zealand for a holiday and buying an expensive bottle of wine. Managing to get it home only to drop it on the garage floor where it smashed.
