Thieves Steal Over $300,000 Worth Of Wine From French Laundry Restaurant. So Far No Clues!


A Christmas Day robbery at Yountville’s storied French Laundry restaurant netted a king’s collection of fabulous wines worth at least $300,000.

The thieves, who jimmied a door at the wine room on the property, obviously knew exactly what they were going for. Most of the 76 bottles taken were from the Domaine de la Romanée Conti, including bottles from the fabled Burgundy estate’s Romanée Conti vineyard that are worth at least $15,000 each.

French Laundry chef and proprietor Thomas Keller took to Twitter, asking for help from the wine community in finding the thieves. He also mentioned a very touching, personal note of sympathy from French Wine Connoisseur Gerard Depardieu which simply read “C’est Dommage”  A shame it is indeed!
