In Vino Duplicitas

In Vino Duplicitas by Peter Hellman is a book about Rudy Kurniawan whom I’ve covered in an earlier blog (7/30/15) and whose crime has also been made into a documentary.

Its the story of the biggest wine hoax in history. Kurniawan was a world class swindler who first established himself as one of the world’s foremost collectors and experts in evaluating wine. He then mixed wine in his kitchen and passed them off as rare wines to some of the county’s wealthiest people and wine enthusiasts.
