Poking around in a fascinating wine cellar
I really love poking around in really good wine cellars and I had a wonderful opportunity to do just that last weekend at the MSLO sales conference at the Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey. Restaurant Latour, a fine-dining establishment on premises, is renowned for its excellent wine collection. The vast cellars house more than 3,640 labels and more than 54,000 bottles, including rare vintages dating back to before 1900. I could not believe what I saw; it was really quite impressive. Come and take a peek.
This is a very special wine-testing machine -- this apparatus can
determine the quality of valuable fine wines without disturbing the
bottle one bit. This also really helps when buying and selling
expensive vintages, to know how long the wine has left before it should
More special equipment -- this is where vintage and rare wines are
tested for cork taint. This technology can detect taint before the
bottle is even opened! They really work hard to satisfy their customers.
