A UK restaurant has admitted to accidentally serving a $6,000 bottle of red wine to a guest.

Hawksmoor Manchester said on Twitter it hoped the customer “enjoyed your evening" after they were given the 2001 bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol.

A spokeswoman for the restaurant said the customer ordered a £260 bottle of the Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2001.

She said:

“It was a very busy night at the restaurant and a very simple mistake. A member of staff picked up the wrong bottle, mistaking it for another Bordeaux of the same vintage.
“The wine went out and was served to the customer. The customer didn't know and it was only afterwards that one of the managers picked up what had happened."

The restaurant advised the member of staff who made the error to keep their “chin up", adding that “one-off mistakes happen" and “we love you anyway".

They even posted a picture of the bottles, so we can have a better understanding on the situation.




The restaurant's message sparked a flurry of amused responses on Twitter, while others praised Hawksmoor for its gentle response to the staff member involved.

Sometimes wine needs a little extra to taste better. Clearly Steve has a well-developed palate.

We are all eager to know who this staff member is, because we want him to be our best friend.

It is nice when employers understand that we all make mistakes.

Even other employees appreciate their reaction.


We all hope he got a good tip.


Others even shared their own mistakes, and how they bonded over them.



Some Tweets are just funny.



The good thing is they have a good sense of humor.



Other businesses understand, and are here to support the Hawksmoor manager.

Tasting notes for Chateau le Pin Pomerol on wineinvestment.com read:

“A tremendous effort, this 500-case cuvee (one of Bordeaux's original garage operations) is even better in 2001 than it was in 2000.
“Its deep ruby/plum/purple colour is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, cherry liqueur, plums, licorice, caramel and sweet toast."
