The World's Oldest Wine At Graycliff Resort
What happens to the world's oldest wines? Many bottles sit in private collections, some remain in the custody of the originating winery (like the world's oldest champagne which was recently opened) and some is in restaurant cellars. At the Graycliff Restaurant at the Graycliff Hotel in the Bahamas one of the world's oldest wines is in residence. The restaurant, which serves Bahamian fusion food, has a comprehensive wine cellar that includes the 1727 Rudesheimer Apostelwein from Bremer Ratsfeller in the "Rheinghau" region of Germany which is considered to be the oldest drinkable wine. The bottle and label date from the 1950s when the wine was drawn off from the cask which remains in the city of Bremen.
Should you prefer something a bit younger, there's always the 1865 Château Lafite and of course, a whole host of modern vintages in a wide range of prices. The wine cellar has over 275,000 bottles with over 4000 selections from 15 countries. Graycliff also has a Cognacteque, a unique collection of Cognacs, Armagnacs and Ports which can be paired with one of the cigars from Graycliff's humidor. An average dinner for two costs $150 not including wine.
