In October of 2005, a massive fire broke out in the Wines Central wine warehouse in Vallejo, California. In what is believed to be the largest loss of wine in history, some 4.5 million bottles worth more than $250 million went up in flames, making it the largest destruction of wine in history. Join award-winning journalist and author Frances Dinkelspiel as she talks about the investigation and back story that led to the writing of Tangled Vines: Greed, Murder, Obsession, and an Arsonist in the Vineyards of California.
