A: Good evening. My name is Yumiko. Nice to meet you. B: Hi, I'm Bob Jones. Nice to meet you Yumiko. A: How are you feeling? You must be a little exhausted from counting so many bottles? B: No, I'm fine. I love my job and this is a great opportunity for me. A: Please explain to me about a wine auction? I have never been to one before but they seem very interesting. B: Wine auctions always start with the young vintages first. Then as it goes on, the vintages get older and older. The best and most prestigious wines are saved for last. A: I see. What is the most expensive bottle that you have ever auctioned off? B: I once sold a bottle for $10000. It was a 1924 bottle of Monte Blonc. A: Wow. That's like liquid gold.
