Default Strange find

My boss and I went to do a home repair estimate today. The house has been vacant for awhile. Basically the owner will never be able to return and the house needs to be prepped to sell. Went through the whole house and then opened a door tucked away in the basement and found this:





I think its wine, or was anyway. I didn't open any of them yet. according to the masking tape labels whatever it is was put there from between 1969 and 1973... the airlocks have probably been dry for 30+ years... what to do with 100+ gallons of 40 year old vinegar.

That is kind of creepy, but I think that might rank up there beating the Crags list scores it the wine is still good. And there is a good chance it is.
Let us know.

Oh my word..doesn't it sort of remind you of the egg farm in alien?



But if they were sealed up really well, even if the airlocks were dry, there may be some fantastic wines in there...maybe never to be duplicated, or tasted again...or maybe just a lot of nice glass carboys...but wow what a find...even a creepy one.

I mean, that is bulk aging heaven. They could be exquisite.
