In the late 1990s, Australian wine purveyor and collector John Baker pursued the adventure of a lifetime — the chance to purchase an incredible collection of wines that Joseph Stalin had hidden in the former Soviet republic of Georgia during World War II, to shield it from the advancing Nazi army. John shares his tales of chasing this elusive collection, which actually dates back to Russia's Tsar Nicholas II, in his book, "Stalin's Wine Cellar."
John's book, "Stalin's Wine Cellar" (co-authored by Nick Place): www.amazon.com/Stalins-Wine-Cellar/dp/1761043668/
