Wine is one of the great passions of Italians who, in addition to admirers, are among the largest producers in the world. There are different types of wine, from a few euros per liter to those costing thousands of euros a bottle.

Today we want to tell an incredible story, how regular wine became a million dollar at auction.
A very special drink
In November 2019, a company sent 11 bottles of wine into space International Space Station. Merlot wine bottles went into orbit for a year and returned to Earth in January of this year.
This one-on-one experiment aimed to discover differences in taste in old wines in zero attractiveness, but turned out to be an acute financial operation.
It is important to know that the type of wine sent into space usually sells for “some” thousands of euros. But what is the value of a “cosmic” bottle?
Watch how a regular wine reached € 1 million at auction
Christie’s London auction house will sell one of the bottles in question at a private auction for an incredible $ 1 million.
It’s hard to say whether it’s worth it: expert bartenders who tasted wine by comparing it to “land” wines of the same type and found some differences.
They claim the taste was distinctly different, with more floral and smoky notes of comparison wines. “Different, but not better,” said the lucky ones of the world’s unique wines.
If it is worth spending the amount that the wine in question was sold for, then we leave it to our readers who, like us, can only dream about the cosmic taste of the wine.
