Restaurant donates accidentally bottle of wine for £ 4.500


Restaurant schenkt per ongeluk fles wijn van 4.500 pond


In the restaurant Hawksmoor in the British Manchester were guests a bottle of wine for £ 4.500 served in place of the bottle of 260 pounds that they ordered. “We hope the couple enjoyed it’, say the owners.

The customers ordered a bottle of Chateau Pichon Longueville Contesse de Lalande 2001 260 pounds, but got by mistake a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomeral from 2001 served. That bottle was on the menu priced at £ 4.500. The mistake only became apparent when the wine has been drunk.



The guests enjoyed the wine, because she ordered a second bottle. ‘The wine at that level is a rarity, with a profile that you won’t find anywhere else, ” says Will Beckett, founder of Hawksmoor.

The person who the wine is served, need not fear for her job. In a tweet writes the restaurant that they had ” her head up high must love’, and that she still likes to have. “We know that they are fantastic,” said Beckett. “I’m going to her teasing when they are not so hard ashamed.’ The restaurant also put a photo online of the two bottles, with the caption ‘The bottles resemble each other, ok!?’
