Bailout Wine from Crushpad
WINEVESTMENT

Bailout Wine from Crushpad

In the "if life gives you lemons" spirit, buy futures in Bailout Wine, a premier 2007 Napa Cab currently aging in oak to be bottled in August '09. For every 100-point drop in the Dow, you'll get a $2 stimulus check, and if the Dow bounces up you know good times are ahead, and you've got the wine to prove it...
