Benjamin Wallace, author of “The Billionaire’s Vinegar,” and New York Times wine columnist Eric Asimov join Francine Segan for a discussion about wine forgery: what it is, how widespread it is, what Thomas Jefferson and Château Lafite Rothschild have to do with it, and the high-profile Kurniawan case. The case’s presiding judge, Richard Berman, will make remarks prior to the start of the panel. A complimentary wine and cheese reception follows. Wed. Aug. 6, 7 p.m., at the 92nd Street Y, Lexington Avenue at 92nd Strret ($21).
