How Wine Fraud Works

Wine fraud may be a case of rich con artists tricking wealthy people into parting with money, but it's still a crime. Learn all about this weird, widespread practice in today's episode.

Red wine is one of life's simple little pleasures for me and the wife. There's something about turning a bunch of grapes into a bottle of Pinot Noir or Cabnernet that just knocks me out. I have a couple of friends in the wine industry and I'm always interested in talking shop with them -- it's a fascinating trade (or art form). Many of you may be in the same boat as me, but some of you may be a little intimidated by the whole wine culture. Sure, there are some snooty snots that will turn up their nose if they realize you aren't an experienced wine enthusiast, but worry not -- we have some great articles on this very Web site that can take the fear out of learning about wine.
