Fortune: The World’s Most Expensive Wine is From Hungary

“A newly-released $40,000 bottle of 2008-vintage wine now ranks among the most expensive wines in the world at release.”

Fortune Magazine’s Clay Dillow goes in-depth about the extreme efforts to create a single bottle of Royal Tokaji’s 2008 Essencia of which only 18 magnumns were produced. “The high price of this special release bottle stems from both cost of production and scarcity. To produce a single magnum of the sweet, syrupy Essencia that Hungarian winemaker Royal Tokaji is now marketing for €35,000 a pop can require more than 400 pounds of grapes, not to mention a lengthy maturation. Each grape must be harvested by hand, placing Essencia among the most labor-intensive wines in the world.”
