Wine fraud

Wine fraud

Wine fraud is a form of fraud in which wines are sold to consumers who have usually paid more than the wine is worth, if actually exists at all.

There have been a number of high profile cases of wine fraud in recent years, ranging from en primeur investment scams to dodgy labels on supermarket wines, all the way up to fake auction consignments of the world's finest and rarest wines.

The problem of fraud is especially acute in China, where the government is increasingly active in fighting forgeries, for both public health and tax reasons.
