Wine store question- Lost case- what would you do?

hopegoode | Oct 11, 2009 04:12 PM

Back in the 1990s, I bought a case of Bordeaux in my local wine store. He agreed to let me store the wine as long as I wanted. Over the years, I returned to remove two bottles that had reached maturity. I buy all my wines and liquors from this shop and have a good relationship with the owner.

However, when I recently returned, the owner could not locate the stored case. Unfortunately, I lost the small bill which had listed the contents and there was no other copy made. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? What would be a fair way to resolve this situation?
