Item Description

On October 12, 2005, a massive fire broke away inside Wines Central wine warehouse in Vallejo, Ca. Within hours, the flames had destroyed 4.5 million containers of California’s best wine worth significantly more than $250 million, making it the greatest destruction of wine in history. The fire was in fact intentionally set by a separate oenophile called Mark Anderson, an experienced con man and thief with storage space within warehouse whom needed seriously to cover his songs. With a propane torch and a bucket of gasoline-soaked rags, Anderson annihilated entire Ca vineyard libraries in addition to bottles of several of the most sought-after wines in the world. One of the priceless bottles destroyed had been 175 bottles of Port and Angelica from associated with the oldest vineyards in Ca created by Frances Dinkelspiel’s great-great grandfather, Isaias Hellman, in 1875. Sadly, Mark Anderson wasn't the first ever to damage the. The annals regarding the Ca wine trade, dating back to on nineteenth Century, is an account of vineyards with dark and bloody pasts, stories of rich males, strangling monopolies, the brutal enslavement of vineyard employees and murder. Five of wine trade murders were connected with Isaias Hellman’s vineyard in Rancho Cucamonga beginning with the killing of John Rains who owned the land during the time. He was shot repeatedly, dragged from a wagon and left from the primary road the coyotes to feed on. In her new guide, Frances Dinkelspiel looks under the casually elegant veneer of California’s wine regions to find the obsession, greed and physical violence lying in delay. Couple of people sipping an excellent Ca Cabernet may also imagine during the Tangled Vines where its life started.
