Rare Wines

Thursday, May 21, 2009

In 1985 a member of the Forbes family spent $156,000 on a bottle of wine allegedly owned by Thomas Jefferson that was unearthed in a bricked-up Paris cellar. Journalist Benjamin Wallace looks into the story of the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold and at the bizarre and mirage-like world of rare wines in his book The Billionaire's Vinegar.

Event: Benjamin Wallace will be in discussion with David Kamp and David Lynch, co-authors of The Wine Snob’s Dictionary, and Michael Steinberger, Slate’s wine columnist and author of the forthcoming book, Au Revoir to All That. There will also be a wine tasting provided by Blanc et Rouge and Jenny & Francois Selections.
