Nothing but grapes

A man enters a store. He only has an empty wallet. Yet he buys an expensive bottle of wine. Can you explain this?

He paid for it via:
 
a) Store credit,
b) Bartering his wallet, or
c) Giving them his credit card details from memory.

Choice (b) is the expected answer. It also the only answer.

Maybe it is quite a large wallet, though; enough to cover all the important bits!

Or maybe his bits are small enough to be covered by a regular wallet..
 
A bottle of wine isn't much for the last piece of your dignity, though.  
Then again, the bottle probably covers a larger area? Depending on the angle..

... and the size (of the bottle, of course).
