The Billionaire's Vinegar

How much would you pay for a good bottle of wine? $10? $40? How about $156,000? Benjamin Wallace's "The Billionaire's Vinegar" is a page-turning romp through the mystery and intrigue surrounding the Christie's auction of a 1787 bottle of Château Lafite Bordeaux. It was sold in 1985 for a whopping $156,450 and was reported to have belonged to none other than Thomas Jefferson himself! But that isn't where the story ends. Where did bottle come from? What exactly are the connections of this bottle throughout history? The Billionaire's Vinegar is a thrilling, suspenseful read akin to The Hitler Diaries and The Da Vinci Code. Read it if you dare!
