About $1 million worth of wine - it was Mollydooker that's supposed to retail for $185/bottle.


A malfunctioning forklift dropped 462 cases of wine in Australia on Thursday, a spill with a price tag of more than $1 million.

The 5,544 bottles of 2010 Mollydooker Velvet Glove shiraz, with a price tag of $185 a bottle, fell almost 20 feet to ground of a wharf in Port Adelaide as the forklift was loading it for shipment abroad, according to media reports.

Price of a bottle most likely will go up to $350 a bottle

If you have 1,000 bottles of wine, you're a connoisseur - if you have 538 bottles you're sad.

Guess I wouldn't know what makes a wine worth $185 a bottle. Good thing they had insurance.
