Five top books on wine

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on wine:
The Billionaire's Vinegar
by Benjamin Wallace

When a scion of the Forbes family paid a record $156,000 for a single bottle of wine at auction in 1985, he thought he was getting a 1787 Chateau Lafite Bordeauxone that had been owned by Thomas Jefferson. The truth proved far murkier. Delving into the controversy provides author Benjamin Wallace ample opportunity to explore the fervor at the heart of wine collecting.
Read about the other books on the list.
