For Sale: 300-Year-Old 'Shipwreck Wine' Rescued From the Bottom of the Sea

May 31, 2019

IN 2010, A TEAM OF underwater salvagers toasted a deep-sea discovery with a rare vintage. Their discovery? The very wine they were about to drink: 350-year-old bottles they had fished out of a decrepit shipwreck off the coast of Hamburg, Germany. Now, two of the bottles are up for auction by Christie's London, and the auction house estimates they'll fetch between $32,942 and $38,010.
