Quench! – Wine Collecting and Storage

So you want to be a wine collector? Are you aware of the perfect storage conditions for your wines, to avoid having your collection develop premature senility? Can you curb your momentary enthusiasms and not end up with the world’s foremost assemblage of Albanian Grenache? Can you thread your way through the intricacies of Bordeaux futures, the auction market, and well-executed and convincing counterfeits? Mark draws on a lifetime of experience, and gives would-be collectors a quick guide to the art of buying, selling and waiting patiently for wine to mature. On Bizarre Beverage News, Mark investigates the case of the counterfeit Romanée-Conti—roughly 400 bottles of the world’s most expensive wine, selling for $12,000-15,000 each, that were found to contain $40 Pinot Noir. He then examines the latest breakthrough in the art of living: wine for cats.
