The Wine Forger's Handbook: 2nd Edition

Fine wine is a multi-million dollar industry, and is fraught with peril. From forged bottles to fraudulent contents, from mislabeled wine to misled consumers, wine has been faked, forged, and used for fraud for as long as it has been consumed. This long read eBook provides a brief history of forgery and fraud in the fine wine world, including case studies on Kurniawan and Rodenstock and many others, from America to China. But this eBook 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. Written by a pair of award-winning writers, wine expert Stuart George and best-selling art crime expert Dr. Noah Charney, The Wine Forger's Handbook is a fun, informative, engaging read, and one which could potentially save you from being fooled in your own wine investments. Ideal for anyone from wine collectors to casual drinkers, or those who enjoy true crime stories of forgery, deception, and detection against the vivid backdrop of the world of wine.

I love wine, although know very little about it, but LOVE this book. It is clearly written by erudite and entertaining experts, making every page a joy. It is not only a fascinating insight into this little known element of the wine trade, but peppered with interesting facts and anecdotes. The price is a steal for such a brilliant work. I have not only bought a copy for myself, my father and my father but also for a couple of writer friends as I know they will appreciate the hard work and craft that has gone into it. And the cover is beautiful. I really recommend you buy a copy.

There are at least two types of readers for this book: those who collect stellar, often expensive wines and those who don't. For the first category, a step-by-step guide to spotting fakes and forgeries is essential knowledge. For the second, the stories that these veteran authors tell about the burgeoning market in illegitimate wines are a great read. Download this short, easty-to-peruse ebook and enjoy the ride.

This is a very entertaining and informative excursion into a world about which I knew next to nothing--fake and forged wines. In addition to opening my eyes to the perils of chasing after, and collecting, rare and famous wines (a purely abstract pursuit in my case), it confirms me in my loyalty to good, modestly priced, table wines. This little book is also a kind of paean to the endless ingenuity of thieves and scammers. The parallels with, and differences from, art forgery are fascinating.

Very interesting.
