One less bottle of Grange... Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
A Melbourne brewery executive was on the verge of tears when he had to smash two bottles of Australia's best-known wine at Melbourne Airport.
Neil Grant, southern region general manager with Foster's Australia, ran foul of the tough air security rules as he was about to board an Emirates flight to Britain.
"I was going to conferences in Scotland and Ireland, and grabbed a 1980 and an '82 Grange from my personal cellar," Mr Grant said.
He estimated the two bottles were probably worth about $3000.
However Mr Grant had forgotten about the 100ml of liquids rule applying to carry-on luggage."
"I said, 'This is like a work of art, it's irreplaceable, do you know what you're doing here?'
He even offered to open the wine so everyone around could try some... he wasn't allowed.
