From the March 6, 2015, Yahoo! News Reuters "Wine from Civil War-era shipwreck to be uncorked in South Carolina" by Harriet McLeod.

An intact bottle of wine was recovered four years ago from a blockade-runner that sank off the coast of Bermuda in 1864 was to be uncorked and sipped Friday (yesterday) during a food festival in Charleston, South Carolina.

How it tastes and its story will be revealed at the Charleston Wine + Food event "From Deep Below: A Wine Event 150 Years in the Making."

About 50 people bought tickets to hear first-hand what is inside one of the bottles and will watch a panel of wine experts taste it.
