Aaland Archipelago, Finland

Two bottles of 200-year old champagne recently salvaged from a Baltic Sea shipwreck will be auctioned off in June. Finland's autonomous province of Aaland has decided that two bottles will be sold at an exclusive champagne auction held in (the capital) Mariehamn . One of the auctioned bottles will be from the house of Veuve-Clicquot and the other from the now extinct house of Juglar. They are part of a batch of around 150 champagne bottles divers stumbled upon last July in a two-masted schooner which had run aground sometime between 1825 and 1830. The Aaland archipelago at the mouth of the Gulf of Bothnia belongs to Finland, though it enjoys autonomy from Helsinki and locals speak Swedish. The image was acquired September 1, 2003, covers an area of 56 x 54.7 km, and is located at 60.3 degrees north latitude, 20.7 degrees east longitude.
