Ouch.

IT was certainly an expensive drop - more than $1 million worth of shiraz wine has gone down the drain after it was dropped by a malfunctioning forklift.

The 462 cases of 2010 Mollydooker Velvet Glove shiraz - at $185 a bottle - fell more than 6m to the ground as it was being loaded for export from Adelaide to the US.

The drop was so forceful, the bottles punched through the top of the cartons. Winemaker Sparky Marquis said the accident had cost him a third of his annual production.

"We just couldn't believe it," Mr Marquis said.

"This wine is our pride and joy, so to see it accidentally destroyed, and not consumed, has left us all a bit numb."

Mr Marquis now is working with insurance agencies to help recoup the losses.

He deserved for trying to charge $185 a bottle for new wine.

Overvalue something, insure it and assure there is an accident.

Now no bad reviews and he gets paid…

No one has to drink overpriced new wine.

Everyone is happy.

Nvr trust a winemaker named "Sparky Marquis," nor named "Sparky McGee" for that matter…
