1 – “I am sailing, stormy waters,To be near you, to be free.” (£61.52)–(source)
Why is this number 1? Because boats go with wine like chalk goes with cheese. No-one truly understands the connection until you have hired a row-boat or been lucky enough to set sail in a yacht and after 5 mins into the journey started drinking the wine. To sit on the deck of a cruise ship with a bottle of wine watching the sunset go down (or up) is one of the best things to experience in life. So it is not so much about the bottle holder its self more about the idea it is trying to portray.
