$1 Million Wine Book
Have £640,000 (~$1.12 million) to spare? Love wine? Check out The Wine Opus, scheduled to be published in a limited edition of only 100 copies by British publisher Kraken Opus sometime next year. At 850-pages, The Wine Opus is an overdose of wine information, but the real feature is a list of the 100 best wineries in the world. Purchasers of the book will receive six bottles of wine from each of the 100 best wineries. Karl Fowler, publisher of Opus Media, commented: "Whoever buys the books will instantly have an incredible wine collection. … Some wineries we expect to be included have waiting lists of 16,000 people for some wines." If you’re interested, you’d better hurry. 25 of the 100 copies are already spoken for.
