December 2, 2016 – If Assouline’s Impossible Collection of Wine is on your shopping list for your favorite wino, you’re outta luck. The magnificent book that weighs 10.5 lbs or 15 lbs in its wooden box, chronicles in great detail, accompanied by gorgeous photography, the outstanding vintages of the 20th century. But it is sold out.
The book is touted as a limited edition, which is understandable, and the person that can afford it is not thinking that $845 would buy a lot of very nice wine. Said person already has a lot of very nice wine stashed in a very nice wine room. Beautiful things like this are inspirational and we have to admire the creativity and craftsmanship that went into its production.
We found the story on Bloomberg News and it is worth checking out if only to see the photo of Jackie Kennedy lighting candles on the dinner table. Where was the butler?
