Chateau Lafite 1869
This bottle of wine caused quite a stir when it went up for auction in Hong Kong. Auctioneers only anticipated it to reach a respectful $8,000, however, to their surprise, an anonymous bidder from Asia claimed the highest bid – $230,000. In Asia, the Chateau Lafite 1869 is considered by many to be extremely rare, so bidders were willing to pay big money to secure one of the worlds most expensive red wine.
Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck
In 1916, a ship carrying the wine was torpedoed by a German submarine in the First World War, causing it to sink to the bottom of the ocean for over 80 years.

So, even if you can’t drink it, for the right amount you get an incredible piece of history and a fantastic story to tell at dinner parties.
