Red, red wine
by MJJA on October 31, 2008Interesting 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.
