Hitler's wine fetches nearly £4,000
A bottle of Nazi wine with a portrait of Adolf Hitler on the label has sold at auction for £3,995. The 1943-vintage Fuhrerwein was from a collection of bottles that were understood to have been given to Hitler’s officers during the Second World War.
The red wine was only expected to fetch between £500 and £800, but it attracted worldwide interest when it went under the hammer in Plymouth in Devon last week, eventually being sold to an unnamed English collector. However, it’s not a bottle that anyone would buy to open and taste because, due to its age, by now the wine inside is undrinkable.
