French Wine Scandel Could Be Good for China

A massive scam has been uncovered in the French Wine Industry; a dozen French winemakers and traders have been found guilty of trying to sell 18 million bottles of fake Pinot Noir to a leading US buyer. In court, the judge sentenced the group for damaging the reputation and credibility of wine from the Langedoc region. The scammers were caught by French Customs officers who recognized that the amount of Pinot Noire being sold was far from what the region could produce.

One country that this news could be good for is China. As of now, China is the 4th largest producer and most of the wine growing is done by the government. Experts predict that in the next 50 years, China is going to become the world’s largest wine producer. Somehow I am not surprised by this news!
