Just don't splash on those nice bottles.
Latest addition to the wine room. This morning I was able to cobble together a two bottle wide rack to the left of the work counter and sink, not much material left now. We’re good for another 4 cases of wine.
@Johnd Nice wine room, indeed! What information to you include on your wine bottle tags? Mark
Thanks! On the tags, I include the vintage year at the very top, the drinking window immediately below that, the rating (if applicable) on the left, and the winery / wine info at the bottom. Attached a pic for reference.
Kept going up, past the Del Dotto’s, past the Rivers-Marie, crap, up to the diamonds.
But of course, all the way at the top, started pulling the Venge Silencieux out of the diamond.
Of course, the second to last bottle from the bottom of the diamond. Ever seen the bottom just pop off of a bottle, much less one so thick? No obvious flaws in the bottle that I could see. Oh well, time to pull out the mop and sponge. Happy Friday....
Thought the same, but looked around, I have some racks totally full with 25 bottles, also Bordeaux bottles, und less than half the thickness of the one that broke. This was a seriously thick bottle. Must’ve had some inherent defect in the glass, that’s all I can think. Temps haven’t changed in the room in years.Too much weight on top? Never seen anything like that happen on my racks but they are only stacked 4 high on the very top rack.
You have some stacked 6-7 high looks like?
Plenty more, it’s one of twelve. I pulled the capsule off of the bottle, looked normal, pulled the cork, no obvious issues there either. I’m guessing just an anomaly.
Fred,Looks like a commercial bottle, no telling how it was handled prior to you getting it, sorry to hear.
