Stalin's Wine Cellar 
In conversation with John Baker and Nick Place

 Stalin's Wine Cellar author event

Join us for Stalin’s Wine Cellar: An in-conversation with John Baker and Nick Place

Always entrepreneurial and up for an adventure, John Baker was the perfect person to approach with a comprehensive catalogue of the wine collection of Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia, and clues of their whereabouts.

 

Solving this puzzle was just the very first step in what would become the most unlikely of wine adventures, one that would take the two men from Double Bay, Sydney, to Tbilisi, Georgia, in search of this legendary wine collection.

 

Join John Baker and Nick Place via Zoom for an in-conversation about their book, Stalin's Wine Cellar (published by Penguin Random House) and hear them discuss the remarkable discovery that has been called "The Raiders of the Lost Ark of wine".

 

Sponsored by The Ewing Trust and delivered by Yarra Libraries and East Gippsland Shire Libraries.
