Fun Wine Fact


The most expensive bottle of wine was auctioned at Christies, London, in December 1985. The buyer paid over 105,000lbs ($180,000) for a bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafitte Red Bordeaux, engraved with Thomas Jefferson’s initials. The story ends in tragedy, before it was consumed the cork dried out, slid into the bottleand ruined the wine.  Thanks to Beth at www.the-twisted-brush.com for this fun fact!  She uses wine glasses to help students create painted art on canvas.  I have painted a fall barn scene, and the Eiffel Tower in Paris!
