Most expensive wines in the world

A complete and up-to-date ranking for such wines is difficult because the market is constantly changing. Very expensive wines are usually produced on the basis of extremely low yields and with the most elaborate methods, often in "manual labour", often in only small quantities of a few thousand bottles. The term garage wine is also used for these. For a single 0.75-litre bottle of such top wines, one has to pay at least 100 to 200, in some cases up to 500 euros, and in the case of older and/or outstanding vintages up to five and not so rarely ten times that amount. In addition to outstanding quality, historical backgrounds or famous previous owners are also important for the high value of a wine bottle. This means that there are collectors who do not acquire such wines for the purpose of enjoyment at all.
