A Wine Cellar Fit for a Queen

Posted by Keith Wallace

Props to the British government:  its wine cellar reportedly holds bottles valued more than $1.3M from the likes of Chateaux Lafite, Margaux, and Mouton Rothschild.  The wines are apparently at the disposal of the British foreign services department during lavish state banquets. 

Although officials assure the British public that all these beauties were purchased at below-market rates, many call for a complete divestment in light of crushing budget deficits.  Interested to know which dignitaries are treated to the top shelf selections?  Unfortunately, that’s considered “commercially sensitive” information.  One sure thing:  those civil servants gifted with the job of sampling from this cave are among the luckiest government stiffs ever.
