Sold for $350,000 this 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is the most expensive wine ever

You may imagine that the most expensive bottle of wine is a decades old vintage that’s busy collecting dust in a cellar somewhere, but you’d be wrong. The title has been claimed by a 2015 cabernet sauvignon created by celebrity winemaker Jesse Katz which sold at Carnivale du Vin, US chef Emeril Lagasse’s annual charity wine auction, in New Orleans. The standard size wine bottle sold for an astonishing $350,000.

The bottle was not purchased by a single buyer, instead a group of friends teamed up with a private wine collector to bid on the bottle. The winemaker, Katz, is the youngest Head Winemaker in the US and has his own vineyard which enjoys a long list of celebrity clients. This 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon was created for Shep Gordon, a Hollywood talent manager, who donated the bottle for the auction.

The wine bottle doesn’t come with any bells and whistles, in case you were wondering. It’s white label features a name “The Setting”, a drawing of Shep Gordon and his signature in addition to the year, vineyard and of course, type of wine. It goes to show that great products don’t need much spotlighting, they speak for themselves.
