Kobe Bryant: Special Wine Worth a Fortune ... 'Tens of Thousands of Dollars'

Exclusive Details

Here it is ... a picture of the special bottle of wine the Golden State Warriors gave to Kobe Bryant ... and we're told it's worth a FORTUNE!!

TMZ Sports spoke with John Schwartz -- the owner of the Amuse Bouche Winery in Napa Valley -- who tells us the special 5 liter Jerobaum bottle of 2012 cabernet was specially made for #24. 

"The wine was made by famed winemaker Heidi Barrett," Schwartz tells us -- Barrett happens to be one of the most famous winemakers in the country. 

Schwartz would not put an exact number on the value of the bottle -- but says similar bottles usually sell for "tens of thousands of dollars."

"This one is one of a kind ... it's priceless."

In fact, the bottle was hand-etched and then painted specifically for Bryant -- by request of the owners of the Warriors who are personal friends with Schwartz. 

Bryant was also gifted a Napa vacation package -- complete with dinners at some of the best restaurants in the area. 

BTW, Schwartz says Kobe shouldn't go poppin' this bottle anytime soon -- "It'll be great now ... but I think in 15 to 20 years it'll age beautifully."
