    Rare and Fine Wine Auction

    Rare and Fine Wine Auction

    • 40 Pins

    We would love to get a hold of one of these to auction off! The Making of the Penfolds Ampoule by Penfolds. The Penfolds Ampoule Project is the ultimate reflection of winemaking heritage, innovation and artistic collaboration delivering a ground-breaking work of art encapsulating a rare and significant wine, 2004 Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon. The Ampoule is a beautiful hand blown scientific grade glass sculpture that acts as a unique vessel.

    Penfolds, arguably the leading producer of Australian fine wine, will celebrate the provenance of a truly extraordinary wine, 2004 Block 42, with the launch of twelve limited edition Ampoules, the only wine released that has been completely encased in glass - no cork; no screwcap. Each Penfolds Limited Edition Ampoule is expected to retail for $168,000 USD, making it the most expensive wine directly sold from a winery in the world.

    Seriously? We don't take ourselves as such!
