Event Type: Books and Authors
Date: 9/13/2017
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
 Meet The Author. Wine journalist and bestselling author Peter Hellman investigates the story of a young Indonesian immigrant, Rudy Kurniawan, who burst onto the rarefied scene of ultrafine wines in 2002. With a discerning palette and a knack for tracking down hard-to-find bottles, he transforms himself into one of the most sought-after members of wine’s high society. The wealthiest collectors spend millions of dollars on wines from his cellar. When crates from his cellar are pulled from an auction in 2008, Hellman was there and investigates as, over several years, Kurniawan’s world comes crashing down. The perfect mix of true crime and fine wine. Hellman will discuss his book and share suggested wine pairings. Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing. Sponsored by Highland Park Bank & Trust.
