Price paid at auction for one bottle of Texas wine purchased by rapper Fifty Cent. Best known for a song that suggests he can be found ‘in da club’ with a ‘bottle full of bub’, Fifty Cent bid high on the 2017 Hye Meadow Winery “Boooom Red”, from the High Plains appellation. The wine is a blend of Negroamaro, Montepulciano, Aglianico and Sangiovese, and just won Top Texas Wine at the 2022 Houston Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition, beating 480 other entrants from the state.
