WINE FRAUD­STER RUDY KUR­NI­AWAN WILL PROB­A­BLY HAVE NOTH­ING LEFT IN HIS CEL­LAR BY THE TIME HE GETS OUT OF JAIL IN THE US, WHERE HE’S BEEN IM­PRIS­ONED FOR UP TO 10 YEARS FOR SELL­ING TENS OF THOU­SANDS OF DOL­LARS WORTH OF BO­GUS BOT­TLES. AS PART OF HIS PUN­ISH­MENT, THE IN­DONE­SIAN WAS OR­DERED TO RE­PAY US$28.4 MIL­LION TO VIC­TIMS OF HIS FRAUD. CON­SUL­TANTS CHARGED WITH SELL­ING HIS COL­LEC­TION HAVE CALLED IT “AMAZ­ING,” AC­CORD­ING TO VAR­I­OUS PRESS RE­PORTS. HOW­EVER, IT MAY TAKE THEM SOME TIME TO COM­PLETE THEIR TASK—AS THEY HAVE TO FIND THE REAL BOT­TLES AMONG THE FAKE ONES.
