Came across an interesting read over at flushrush. Almost unbelievable some of these bottles and the amount of money they are worth. Diva Vodka at over a million dollars.... hmm wonder what a shot would be then??
#3 Chateau Lafite 1787
There's a great book I'm currently reading "Billionaire's Vinegar" by Benjamin Wallace about this bottle. Very interesting view of the most elite collectors and their wines. I believe the story was originally published in either the NYT or Atlantic. Don't know how it ends yet . . .
Gosh, out of the top 10, I only have three in my cellar - NOT!
Now, it will be interesting to see how well some of these sell, when certain segments of the population no longer have their fortunes. Times might be changing a bit. Glad that I did not invest to make $ on any of these.
The detail eluded me. But some time ago, I remember seeing a program on TV's Travel channel where they featured the world's top ten most expensive dishes. The most expensive dish apparently is a dessert wine own by a hotel in the Caribean. Its a one of a kind half bottle of a really old German Riesling TBA. Some guests was willing to pay US$90,000 for it but the owner wanted $125,000!!
