Meet the World's Most Expensive Wine - 'Penfolds Block 42'


Guess what happens when you buy a bottle of the world's most expensive wine known as 'Penfolds Block 42?'

There are only 12 limited editions of the glass ampoule and if you're one of the lucky purchasers, you get your very own special opening ceremony.

Interestingly, a bottle of 'Penfolds Block 42' costs $168, 000.

Here's the press release's description of how that plays out:


    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.

2004 Block 42 is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a single vineyard. It is the most expensive wine directly sold from a winery in the world (well, assuming it does sell for $168,000). The glass sculpture was designed and hand-blown by Australian glass artist Nick Mount.
