« La cave à vin de Staline » est tout simplement LE livre sur le vin le plus fascinant de ses dernières années. Il s'agit d'une énorme cave souterraine de plus de 40 000 bouteilles, cachée en Géorgie, l'ancien état soviétique. Cette cave appartenait à Josef Staline et provenait du dernier tsar de Russie Nicolas II et de son père Alexandre III, confisquée après l'exécution du Tsar et sa famille. Elle a été cachée par Staline à Tbilissi en Géorgie près de son lieu de naissance alors qu'il craignait qu'Hitler n'envahisse la Russie et ne confisque la collection de vins. La collection compte plus de 200 bouteilles de Château d'Yquem, d'autres grands sauternes et des meilleurs grands châteaux de Bordeaux, des millésimes de plus de 150 ans. Un trésor vinicole probablement inégalé dans le monde. Et ce qui rend l'histoire incroyablement passionnante, c'est sa découverte par un couple de marchands de vins de Sydney dont les nombreuses péripéties font de ce livre un vrai thriller.
