Really Expensive Wine

I just read a blog by Brian Clegg about

Brian Clegg a  book titled “The Billionaire’s Vinegar”. Yes, it’s about wine – very old and ancient wine.

Though not having read it, yet (it’s new on my TBR list, so it’s fairly far down), I am intrigued by the blog’s information regarding the possible fakery of such expensive sale items. Some of these bottles have apparently gone for as much as $100,000!! It would make sense that some brave entrepreneur would try to fake a few.

Billionaires Vinegar But what do you do with a $100,000 bottle of wine?

You drink it, silly! Lordy, introduce me to the guys who spend their money like that!

Now you and I both know that if wine is left out overnight, it tastes like vinegar. If the cork is tainted by TCA, the wine can be ruined, or ‘corked’.

Here’s my question to all you fabulously wealthy wine connoisseurs: How do you know the wine in that aged container is still wine and not vinegar? How do you know it’s not rebottled table wine? How do you know it will be worth the expense?

The only answer I can possibly accept is, “I’m a speculator.”glass of wine

Ahhh, the romance of a gambler who prefers a  candlelight tasting to a Vegas poker table – give me that any day. These are individuals in no need of a wash-board stomach or a tan. All they need to get my attention is to invite me for a glass!

Tense, excited, sitting in anticipating as the sommelier opens the bottle… one wonders – what will they pair with this enigma?

About Niki

Niki Chanel is a character created by Alexandra Kent, author of Supernatural Suspense.

This website is written in Alex’s point of view; her view of an insecure “Creative”, driven to write, draw, compute, sculpt, paint – anything to break out of her personal prison of shyness.

In the first book of the Niki Chanel series, two teenage girls, Alexandra and Monique meet and become the best of friends. Together they create a stage character named Niki Chanel. They quickly find that either of them can use the Niki persona to collect information, gain entrance to high levels of society, and that fame is not always fleeting. They also realize Niki is in danger.

This notebook website is written in Alex’s point of view; she says it keeps her sane.
