Stalin’s Wine Cellar by John Baker and Nick Place – Our Review
Wow! What a thrilling adventure, I thought as I exhaled after reading the last page of ‘Stalin’s Wine Cellar: The true story’ by John Baker.
John Baker made a living as a renowned wine purveyor in high end Sydney through the late 1990s. Along with his business partner Kevin, the two knew a thing or two about the most exquisite wines in the world and were often sought out for the incredible expertise in the cellar.
John was never one to shy away from adventure and risk, yet when he was accosted by an occasional business partner with news of a secret wine cellar in Georgia even he was a little intimidated.
Rumoured to have once belonged to the last Tsar of Russia and then to Stalin himself this was absolutely amazing news, but was the cellar actually authentic?
There’s only one way to find out! John and Kevin embark on a journey to the other side of the world for the trip of a lifetime to see this multi million dollar unimaginable cellar of wines for themselves.
Boy do they meet some characters along the way in this high stakes mission. Its risky, and entirely enthralling what transpires along the way! The perfect book for Father’s day, a fascinating story that must be enjoyed with a good drop!
