Wine writer Stuart George and best-selling art crime expert Dr. Noah Charney has recently published “The Wine Forger’s Handbook”. Here is what Stuart says about the book: “Fine wine is a multi-million dollar industry and is fraught with peril. From fake bottles to fraudulent contents, from mislabelled wine to misled consumers, wine has been faked, forged, and used for fraud for as long as it has been consumed. This eBook provides a brief history of forgery and fraud in the fine wine world, including case studies on Rudy Kurniawan and Hardy Rodenstock.”
The Wine Forger’s Handbook also functions as a guide, both on how fraudsters have been found out, and tips on how to avoid being fooled in your own wine purchases. Hopefully it will not provide people with too many tips on how to become a fraudster yourself!
The book, says Stuart, “is for everyone who enjoys true crime stories of forgery, deception, and detection set against the vivid backdrop of the world of wine”.
If you would like to buy the book: The Wine Forger’s Handbook.
Stuart is also a guest writer on BKWine Magazine.
