Last weekend, the Cabernet Sauvignon wine bottle from 2015 was sold for an incredible $ 350,000. This wine was sold at an auction for the Emeril Lagasse Carnivale du Vin foundation, making it the most expensive wine ever-sold at auction.
This news also delighted the man who donated this bottle of wine – Hollywood agent Shep Gordon, because proceeds of the sale will help to fund a variety of youth education organizations.
Jesse Katz – the winemaker behind the pricey bottle – is not only the youngest person to be hired as a head winemaker in the United States, but he’s also a winemaker who counts Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel as fans. At their wedding was served the “Blue Ocean Floor” wine, a special blend of red wine that was created by Jesse Katz.
On Katz’s website for his Devil Proof Vineyards, the couple proudly declared that “Jesse Katz is one of our favorite winemakers. His Devil Proof Malbec proves yet again that he makes the most delicious cult wines in the industry. His wine has been a part of our cellar and enjoyed on countless occasions.”
