Top 10 most expensive wines sold at auction

1. Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 1992 – £297,000 ($500,000)

ScreamingEagle_OWCWhile the officially recognised most expensive wine sold at auction is the previously mentioned 1947 Cheval Blanc, there is another bottle of wine which was sold for more. However because it was sold part of a charity auction, and thus discounted, it is regularly omitted from official lists. In 2000 a six-litre bottle of Screaming Eagle Cabernet currently holds the unofficial title of most expensive bottle of wine ever sold at auction. It went under the hammer at a charity wine auction in Napa for the staggering sum of $500,000, reported to have been purchased by Chase Bailey, a former Cisco Systems executive.

    ow’s about the case of 1978 Romanée-Conti that went under the hammer at Christie’s HK 22 – 24 November 2013 for £295,838?

    Question to The Drinks Business: Is Massandra’s Sherry de la Frontera 1775 in fact a sherry?
