I read The Billionaire’s Vinegar a couple of years ago. It’s the story of old wine, Thomas Jefferson and possible fraud. I learned two things from reading it: a lot more about old French wines than I knew before, and too much about people who have so much money they can both collect and drink wine costing thousands of dollars a bottle.
A new wine fraud story has emerged, and is reported in the New York magazine. It’s still on-going and a small part of the world revealed in the Billionaire’s Vinegar, but makes for a good story well told.
