Have you ever wondered which is the most expensive wine in the world and how much are we talking about?

Let’s face it, not all wines are created equal. Bottles are particularly sought out for the quality of the harvest and vintage in the year they were made.  And where are they going? There are numerous prolific collectors across the globe, with the largest of them all in Moldova. The collection of 2,000,000 bottles is said to stretch 250km (155mi) underground in the country.

So what are the traits of the world’s most expensive wines:

  • They’re made of popular wine grapes.
  • The most expensive wines are still aged in oak.
  • They’re made with perfectly ripe grapes.
  • They’re site specific.
  • They’re not made every vintage.

Here we are, the top 5 most expensive wines in the world:

  1. 1945 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti: £424,000
  2. 1992 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon: £393,000
