Wine That Went Into Space Selling for $1 Million


This wine was literally out of this world, but now its price tag is.

  • A bottle of French wine that spent over a year in the International Space Station is being auctioned off for $1 million.
  • The bottle of Pétrus 2000 was originally worth $10 thousand before joining 11 other bottles in space.
  • Tim Tiptree of Christie's wine and beverages division said that the wine was “matured in a unique environment," which could have altered the taste.
  • Is $1 million a ridiculous asking price for wine that went into space? What food or drink do you think should be sent to space as an experiment?
