Something new for the podcast today. Life is hectic and sometimes you need to do things out of necessity. I was unable to produce an episode for this week, so I thought I would go back and find one of my most popular episodes and provide an opportunity for my new listeners to hear it and my dedicated listeners to remember the fun we had in discussing the outrageously priced bottle of wine.
I got together with some wine writing friends to discuss a topic in the wine world that has been hitting the headlines quite a bit lately. How much is too much to spend on bottle of wine? The topic was triggered by the announcement of Liber Pater declared that he was going to produce 550 bottles of his 2015 vintage and release them for $34K.
Now, that may be a price tag that the majority of us couldn’t even contemplate spending, but then on Instagram, a post by Amber Burke of winetraveleats, posted a photo of a bottle of Nickel & Nickel, with a hefty price tag of $185. This triggered a rather long back and back debate over whether the wine was worth it.
With that, I opted to get my friends together and have a little heart to heart about what we are willing to spend on a bottle of wine. And is any bottle worth $34K.
