Wine is Another Business with Fraud Booming

19 July 2009  |  1992 views  |  0

I do enjoy a good wine, and have been spoiled by friends with great taste and great cellars so this FT article about fake wines caught my eye. I was struck by reports of almost amateur fraud occuring at wine auctions, often not spotted except by the winemaker themselves such as Burgundian Laurent Ponsot.

It did provoke my thoughts to the point where I think I have a perfect solution. It would even help for the old bottles currently laying around and certainly protect the value of your wines into the future.

The power of a thought-provoking article.
