More Money Than Sense

More Money Than Sense

It is a sad fact of life that there are people on this planet with more money than sense, who are prepared to pay absurd prices for wine and food.

Staff at Zafferano in Knightsbridge were needless to say salivating in anticipation, when one of their customers ordered a bottle of Petrus 1961 (modestly priced at £18K a bottle).

Needless to say, things didn't quite go according to plan when the wine was uncorked. The customer sent it back, stating that it was a fake.

Enzo Cassini, the general manager, tested it and announced it undrinkable and mouldy.

However, Zafferano had the last laugh, the customer then ordered a bottle of Mouton Rothschild 1945 for £20K.

There is no way that wine is worth such a high price, no matter where it comes from.

There must be better things to do with your money?
