Thomas Keller Asks for Help Tracing Stolen Wine from The French Laundry

Over $300,000 of wine has been stolen from Thomas Keller’s French Laundry restaurant in California after a burglary on Christmas Day.

The thieves broke open a door leading to the restaurant’s wine room where they made out with around 76 bottles of some serious wines.

The LA Times reports that bottles from the famous Romanée Conti vineyard, valued at around $15,000 each, were stolen in the robbery.

Keller has asked the wine community to help in recovering or tracing some of the stolen bottles,“We are confident that if and when any of the stolen bottles appear in public, they will immediately raise questions and red flags among the wine knowledgeable.

“The French Laundry wine program is, as many of you know, singular and distinct. We look forward to rebuilding our cellar in the meantime and plan to get to the bottom of this disheartening act immediately.”

The French Laundry was number one on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List in 2003 and 2004.

The chef and his team have also released a full list of the wines that were stolen.
