Earlier this year, he sank 600 750ml bottles of handmade amphora thin-necked clay jars of Petit Verdot wine, which remained at the bottom of the sea for nine months.

The ocean promotes wine, which becomes more complex while maintaining its longevity, says Lorenzo: In the depths of the ocean, oxygen is thin and there are no vibrations, all of which make for an ideal environment to preserve wine. The wine, closed with a cork and sealed with wax, will go on sale in early December for 200 euros.
