I received an e-mail today from Acker Merrall & Condit, the New York-based wine merchant and auctioneer, and it reported that its second wine auction in Hong Kong totaled about about $4.8 million. Over 1,100 lots of wines were sold at this past weekend’s sale in Hong Kong, including 2,000 bottles of Bordeaux, 3,000 bottles of Burgundy and 1,200 bottles of the world’s finest Champagne.

It looked all too familiar: Premiere Napa Valley 2009, on a sunny Saturday last. Knee-high mustard rising from the vineyards, brilliant splashes of yellow and green. A rainbow-colored hot-air balloon drifting lazily above the Veteran’s Home in Yountville.

One of the most popular subjects of this week’s trip to Bordeaux is the Bernard Madoff scandal. Sure, we've talked about wine (particularly 2006, because I am tasting the vintage from bottle), as well as the grim economy and the change in politics.

The Hong Kong stock market lost almost 5 percent of its value today. But at end of last week it was up. I guess it doesn’t have any influence on how much people are willing to spend in wine auctions over there.

The figures are mind-boggling. I read the International Herald Tribune every day, and I just can't get my head around the amount of money our government is spending to try to right a completely broken financial system.
