    Wine taster's nose insured for millions

    LONDON - His schnoz is not to be sniffed at. The nose of leading European winemaker and taster Ilja Gort has been insured for euro5 million ($8 million), Lloyd's of London said Tuesday. He took out the policy after hearing about a man who lost his sense of smell in a car accident.

    "I thought it must be a horror to lose your smell," Gort said. "It would mean that you cannot taste wine anymore. Tasting wine is something you do with your nose, not your mouth."

    Gort, 47, said his nose is essential for him to produce top quality wines at his Chateau de la Garde vineyard in the famous Bordeaux region of France, so he got it insured..............

    Re: Wine taster's nose insured for millions

    Maybe more of a stunt to get good publicity for his vinyard. kinda like porn stars or famous gals insuring thier legs or boobs. I tried to get Llyod's of London to insure my sense of "right and wrong" but I could not find it. :-
    Tuco the world.....
