Dr. Juan Fried (1924-2007) collected an estimated 50,000 wine labels. The collection contains extensive labels from Europe
(France, Italy, and Spain) as well as from the United States.
Dr. Juan Fried (born Janos Fried) (1924-2007) was a Hungarian Holocaust survivor who went to Venezuela before coming to the
United States. He was a doctor of internal medicine for the Veterans Administration in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Fried began
the wine label collection in retirement circa 1990. Because of his ability in languages (English, Italian, French, Spanish,
Hungarian, Czech, and German), he was able to correspond with many European wineries.
