Tall tipple

Former basketball star Yao Ming was among guests at a fundraising banquet for the Special Olympics last night in Shanghai. Yao saw his first bottle of Yao Ming 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, together with his shoe molds, make 200,000 yuan (US$31,423) in an auction at the event. The charity banquet raised nearly 2.9 million yuan for the Special Olympics. The first 1,200 bottles of Yao Family Wines will be available on the market for 3,800 yuan each. The 31-year-old multimillionaire also donated a super-sized jacket for auction, which was bought by a businessman for 160,000 yuan.
