Fake red wine impounded

This article was originally published in Foodnews

TAIWANESE authorities have raided a factory in New Taipei City and seized 10 000 bottles of fake red wine, Focus Taiwan reported. The wine, made from concentrated grape juice and various chemicals, was being fraudulently labelled and sold as a prestigious brand of imported red wine. The company used its legal status as a red wine importer to sell the fake wine to distributors. From March 2009 to the present, it made more than USD930.3 million in profits from the sale of the fake wine. It was sold to retail chain stores at a price of TWD200 (USD6.90) per 750ml bottle, but it actually cost only TWD70, according to investigators.
