A Diner Ordered a $333 Bottle of Wine. That's Not What CameNewser — Arden Dier
A diner ordered a $333 bottle of wine at a UK steakhouse on Wednesday and instead received a "mythical" Bordeaux worth about 17 times as much. It's unclear if the customer dining at Hawksmoor Manchester realized their good fortune.
It was only after the meal that a manager discovered a staff member had grabbed the wrong bottle—a 2001 Chateau le Pin Pomerol, with a menu price of roughly $5,750, rather than the ordered 2001 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande.
"To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway," the restaurant said in a Thursday tweet.
"To the customer ... hope you enjoyed your evening!"
