The world's best wines, the rarest vintages,
are always packed in wooden cases...
Bordeaux, Burgundy, Port.
Chateau Lafite, Chateau Latour.
La Tache, Richebourg,
Some of these bottles sell for $1,000 and more.
Even the EMPTY cases are valuable, collectable.
So when a famous wine distributor announced
it was being purchased by a larger firm,
the wine was sold,
but not the old empty cases.
So off I went to grab some wine history.
(It's as close as I'll get to having the wines!)
