He had ordered a 260 pound bottle of red wine, Le Pin Pomerol, but at his table he got a 4,500 pound one!
The strange “accident”, the fault of a careless waiter occurred in the Hawksmoor restaurant in Manchester, which revealed the story.
It was the owner of the restaurant who published the story on the restaurant’s Twitter page, addressing the lucky customer.

The error, probably due to the confusion of the name written on the labels,
No consequence for the inattentive waiter, who served the wrong bottle of wine. From the owner of the restaurant, in fact, words of understanding and encouragement arrived. The phrase, published on social media, was followed by a smiley face.
To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is £4500 on our menu, last night – hope you enjoyed your evening! To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway 😉
