A few weeks back Penfolds released the world’s most expensive wine, a $168,000 Cab Sav entirely encased in glass.
Now, I really like drinking wine, but this is probably the biggest wankfest thing I have ever seen in my life.
“When a decision is made to open the Ampoule a senior member of the Penfolds Winemaking team will personally attend a special opening ceremony for the owner (essentially your very own master-class). The winemaker will travel to the destination of choice, where the Ampoule will be ceremoniously removed from its glass plumb-bob casing and opened using a specially designed, tungsten-tipped, sterling silver scribe-snap. The winemaker will then prepare the wine using a beautifully crafted sterling silver tastevin.”
