This still seems pointless, even after following the link. Someone must really have a need for an empty wine bottle - empty of more than just the wine.
This couldn't help Malcolm Forbes, who I'd read bought an Alexander Hamilton wine but stored it standing up resulting in the cork drying out and falling in. The lead/wax/whatever seal was still in place and the wine was too old to drink anyway - but appearances.*
- Can't find a link to the original story I'd read. Only my own recent reference to it.
Update: There do seem to be some web references to a Wine/Forbes/FallenCork. It's Jefferson instead of Hamilton and the quotes seem to repeat.
