Location: Lamb Room

True crime pairs well with fine wine in the astonishing story of Rudy Kurniawan, perhaps the most notorious wine forger in history.

After bursting onto the scene in 2002, Kurniawan quickly became the leading purveyor of rare wines to the American elite. But in April 2008, his lots of Domaine Ponsot Clos Saint-Denis red burgundy—dating as far back as 1945—were abruptly pulled from auction. The problem? The winemaker was certain that this particular burgundy was first produced only in 1982.

Journalist Peter Hellman was there, and he would closely investigate as a singular cast of characters worked to unravel the biggest con in wine history.
