Provenance Problems

How carefully do you research where your wine comes from? We tend to think of wine fraud as subpar bottles masquerading as high-caliber fine wine, but fraud also comes in the form of selling bottles that have been damaged in ways you can’t see by examining the label. To wit, Maureen Downey of Chai Consulting is cautioning that many wines from cellars damaged in the California fires may be sold in the future. Heat damage can change how a wine tastes and ages, so when shopping for fine wine, vet your sources!
