I don't drink wine yet I found the subject of this book fascinating. The book is a very interesting story about the vintage wine market and centers around discovered bottles that may have belonged to Thomas Jefferson.I could not put this book down till the very last page.You will not be disappointed!

Red, red wine

by MJJA on Oct 31, 2008

Interesting book, there are several themes including: Wine tasting, the business of selling rare wine, fraud and wealth. The wine piece is a bit cumbersome with far too much detail for a casual reader but the real story is fascinating. Mega wealthy "connoisseurs" spend too much money trying to impress each other while a slick hustler takes them for a ride. It was a good read that enhanced my knowledge of fine wine and told a great tale of people with money to burn. The real story however, is of a man who spends an ungodly amount of money purchasing rare wine and then spends even more to prove it is fake. I am going to send it to the few wine "snobs" I know and hope they understand that the joke is on them.
