Wine is an alcoholic beverage, which is produced by the fermentation of grapes and other fruits. Wine is not only cultivated to produce different colours such as Red Wine, White Wine and Rosé and in some cases, Green in Portugal’s Algarve.

With the help of creativity, there are a myriad of varieties which are created by blending different grapes with various yeast strains to develop new and innovative wine species.
Although, the inception of Wine production can’t be ascertained, history traced it back to the Caucasus and the northern edge of the Middle East in 6000 BC. It was later spread westwards by the Phoenicians through to Lebanon and Israel. From there, wine production was exported to Egypt and the Mediterranean where it became a staple beverage.
In the present day, wine production is broken down into two main categories: the Old World and the New World, each appealing to different palates. The foremost Old World producers of wine are Italy, Spain and France; while the New World contenders hailing from South Africa, Chile, Australia, the United States, Nigeria and England.
Just like most items, some wines are only available to those who can afford them. These set of bottles cannot be snatched off the shelve. Let’s take a look at a fabulous selection of the world’s most expensive wines that stimulate the palates of only the rich and privileged.
