A wine shop in Queensland has slammed the price of the bottle of wine that was allegedly sold at a restaurant on the Gold Coast.
A Facebook post from a member of the wine community has been shared more than 2,700 times, with some calling for the wine to be removed from the market.
In a statement to news.com, a Wine Shop in Brisbane said it had received numerous complaints about the wine.
“We are currently working with the Liquor Control Board of Queensland to assess our compliance with the current liquor regulations,” it said.
“The Wine Shop is currently in discussions with the LCB to ensure the product is in compliance.”
The Wine shop is also looking into how to address the concerns of the Wine Club, which said it was concerned about the price tag and asked for the bottle to be taken off the shelves.
“It is disgusting and disgusting,” Wine Club member Lisa MacLellan said.
“This is not a cheap bottle of fine wine.
It’s more like a disgusting cocktail of drugs and alcohol.”
Ms MacLillan said it made her feel sick to her stomach.
“This is a luxury drink, and it should be a privilege, not a crime,” she said.
The Wine Club said it believed the price was inflated.
“I am disgusted that this is the price at which people would get into such a dangerous situation,” Ms MacLilan said, adding it was a “terrible price” that should be removed.
“To have a drink like this on the table is disgusting.
If I didn’t feel ill, I would have stopped drinking.”
A Liquor Commission spokesperson said the regulator would investigate the complaint and ensure that any issues were addressed.
“If a complaint is received, the Liquors Commission will investigate and take appropriate action to ensure that it is properly addressed,” the spokesperson said.
