SOUR GRAPES

Expected to Attend: Reuben Atlas

NYC PREMIERE Rudy Kurniawan, an unassuming young Indonesian man, makes a splash when he begins to attend specialty wine auctions. An apparent wine savant, his aggressive buying helps lead the wave that sees fine wine prices skyrocket before the 2008 financial crisis. Kurniawan amasses $35 million from auctioning off rare wines from his own collection. But after suspicious bottles are discovered making their way through elite wine circles, controversy erupts, prompting an investigation with surprising results.
