The Billionaire's Vinegar: The Mystery of the World's Most Expensive Bottle of Wine by Benjamin Wallace
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have to say that I am a little disappointed in this book. It was good, but it took me forever to finish a book that should have kept me engaged since I am interested in wine and love a good mystery. I had a hard time reading more than a ten pages or so at a time. When I first started, the story was engaging, but as I got further into it, I had a harder time picking it up.
Mr. Wallace's descriptions of the characters and the locations, both past and present, were well written. I enjoyed reading his descriptions of what Thomas Jefferson probably experienced when traveling through the French countryside looking for wines to ship back to Monticello.
I'll probably give this book another try at a later date.
