Adrian Carsini is a fanatical wine connoisseur who operates a winery on the California coast. When Adrian's indifferent brother, who owns the winery property, threatens to sell it, Adrian kills him in a fit of rage. He places his brother's body in the wine vault while he travels to New York to attend a conference. Adrian disposes of the body on his return, and in such a way as to make his brother's demise look like an accident. But he hadn't counted on the canny Lieutenant Columbo to be assigned to the case. Stars Peter Falk.
