Charlie Trotter is being sued for selling fake $42K bottles of wine

gty_charlie_trotter_nt_130614_wblogOne of the most famous restaurants of Chicago Charlie Trotters closed down last year because the Chef Charlie Trotter wanted to study law.

Looks like there was a reason to study law. Two New Yorkers who are pressing charges against him for selling counterfeit wines are suing the chef.


Bekim and Ilir Frrokaj the two wine collectors from New York, were sold bottles of wine which cost $46000 – which they claim are fake.


The lawsuit accuses Trotter and his former restaurant of violating federal and state consumer laws, and seeks $75,000 in damages. Efforts to recover without going to court proved unsuccessful, the plaintiffs’ lawyer John Auchter said Thursday.
