Sour Grapes

Wine is big business and Jerry Rothwell and Reuben Atlas's entertaining documentary lays bare an ingenious con that exposed the ridiculous prices some people are willing to pay for a rare vintage. In 2006, gregarious wine expert Rudy Kurniawan went to auction with the contents of his cellars and made an eye-watering 35 million dollars from two high profile sales. Two years later, Kurniawan's impeccable credentials were called into question when French producer Laurent Ponsot realised that the sale included wine from his vineyards for a year when his family hadn't produced a vintage. A far-reaching investigation into the auctions reveals how an unassuming young man managed to bamboozle obsessive collectors with fake vintages valued in the millions.
