Shipwreck wine

Post by PhilW » 14:44 Thu 30 May 2019

A fascinating lot coming up at Christies next week, of two bottles of very, very old shipwreck wine.

Sadly not fortified; the bottles look fabulous - but believed probably undrinkable; which makes £30k a lot even and with a specially designed water-filled storage tank thrown in! A piece of history though, for someone with a museum or for whom £30k is pocket-change, perhaps.

Auction lot with more details here.
