Wine is the kind of beverage that comes to your mind when you’re thinking about romance, when you are thinking about a perfect date, or a perfect night with someone you love and cherish; But wine can be more than that, not only it can be more than that, it is more than that, and I’m not just talking about the nice effects it has on people’s health. Look, we all know wine is not necessarily a cheap drink. As a matter of fact, the cheaper it is the more suspicious most people get. You don’t want to drink grape juice with some alcohol poured inside of it and mixed with a spoon, am I right?
Wine is a romantic drink, wine is a healthy drink and wine is, most often than not, an expensive drink. Wine can serve as a demonstration of one’s financial powers. If you don’t believe me at face value, let me show you.
Do you want to prove to your friends you are a rich person? Take them all to your private shooting range and use these bottles as targets. You can give the survivors, if there are any survivors, to some of your friends and call it a night. So what you’ve wasted half a million dollars in a single night shooting at wine? Money is not a problem, money will never be a problem! You can as well buy a Ferrari and give baseball bats to all of your friends to help them ease the stress next time. Or you can all sit around a kiln melting the gold you’ll all use for some pieces of abstract paintings.
You know you could probably buy a property in Moldova with this kind of money, don’t you? The production of this wine is limited, for several reasons. The two main reasons are, well perfectionism on the part of the makers and the size of the land they have. It sure must taste good but we’re talking about twenty thousand dollars here. There are loads of people in the world that don’t make this kind a money in an entire year of hard work.
You can buy this or a Camaro. Actually, the Camaro is a little cheaper. I know that is a hard choice for wine lovers (or should I say wine obsessed), but if I had this kind of money that Camaro would be mine and, with a little luck, I could even buy the first bottle of our list to celebrate the acquisition.
Now you can buy this or you can still choose a Camaro, plus new furniture and dozens of new clothes. Penfolds Grange Hermitage is one of Australia’s jewels.
I would not be surprised if the name of this wine was actually a joke of the producers. You know, they imagine the husband getting home all happy and bouncy, proud of his new acquisition. His wife takes part on the excitement at first and casually asks about the price. When she hears that number with so many zeros in it, she becomes the screaming eagle, and her husband must run and hide.
