"..........Behind the doors of each cabinet are drawers filled with wine from one of these estates: 18 bottles of its best vintages from the past 200 years.........."


Hardy must have started a new wine business. It also comes with a Coke vending machine.....you know, for mixing the wine. [snort.gif]

While there is definitely a tacky factor, I can see how the set would look pretty damn cool as a display in a restaurant.
Although, not all of the first growth chateaus are remotely as attractive from an architectural perspective as the depicted Ch. Margaux...

Who can guess this Bordeaux estate? The answer should not seem hard.

I thought Ausonne would be part of the Bordeaux top-9?

I'm pretty sure Howard Roark did not design those cabinets.
So shines a good deed in a weary world!
