On a visit to the Bahamas, which was orchestrated by Bahamas Tourism, I had the opportunity to stay in one of the most unique hotels in the world, the Graycliff in Nassau. The history in this old school hotel is palpable, but never more so than when you tour the hotel’s wine cellar.
A sommelier’s dream come true, the Graycliff collection is practically without rival, exemplified by the fact that they own the most expensive bottle of wine in the world.
The bottle in question, a 1727 Rudesheimer Apostelwein from Bremen Ratskeller in the “Rheinghau” region of Germany is priced at $200,000 and is one of the most rare wines in the world. In case you were wondering, it is still drinkable because of the high sugar content inherent in an ice wine.
The Graycliff is a feast for all the senses and their attention to fine wine and dining is what sets them apart from more “mainstream” properties.
