FrontRunners: Big Red

Guests sampled wine and hors d’oeuvres in the presence of a giant at the Beverly Hills Arnie Morton’s (www.mortons.com), when the restaurant and Beringer Vineyards (www.beringerblass.com) presented Maximus, the world’s largest wine bottle, at a recent stop on its cross-country tour. Created to mark Morton’s 25th anniversary, the nearly 5-foot-tall, Bordeaux-style wine bottle (and its twin, which is not on the road but rather stored under perfect conditions) measures 4.5 feet in circumference, holds 130 liters (14.4 cases), and weighs 340 pounds filled. Beringer plans to show the presentation bottle at 27 Morton’s locations before shipping the safely stowed twin and its contents—Beringer’s 2001 Napa Valley Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon—to New York for auction at Sotheby’s. All proceeds from the sale of the bottle will benefit the hunger-fighting organization Share Our Strength, giving the wine an especially satisfying finish.
