Jury selection began Monday in the trial of star wine dealer Rudy Kurniawan, accused of masterminding a lucrative scheme to sell fake vintage wine in New York and London. But, prosecutors say, Kurniawan's taste for luxury -- he owned a fleet of vehicles including a Lamborghini, a large collection of contemporary art and Patek Philippe watches -- was built on a lie. Instead of rare vintages, Kurniawan was often selling allegedly store-bought wine which had been re-bottled using either fake labels or genuine labels from empty bottles. Kurniawan sat in the Southern District New York court in Manhattan as jury selection began under Judge Richard Berman.
