Wine critic Robin Goldstein exposes the wine world's awards selection process. He also talks about conducting brown-bag blind wine tasting to reveal the true taste difference between an expensive bottle of wine and a cheap one.
Goldstein, founder and editor-in-chief of the Fearless Critic series, is also the co-author of The Wine Trials: 100 Everyday Wines Under $15 that Beat $50 to $150 Wines in Brown-Bag Blind Tastings.

The story about Goldstein and his faux wine award recently appeared in a Los Angeles Times article.
