A $168,000 bottle of wine has sold at Toronto’s Summerhill LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) store, according to the Toronto Star. The Summerhill LCBO is located in Toronto’s affluent Rosedale area.
The Penfolds Ampoule is a limited-edition Australian wine, one of only 12 handmade bottles ever produced. This is only the third bottle in the world to sell – the first two sold in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Interestingly, the purchase price will include a visit from a senior member of the Penfolds wine making team, who will personally attend a special opening ceremony.
