China busts 50,000 bottles of fake Penfolds in Zhengzhou


Police in China‘s central Zhengzhou city have busted 50,000 bottles of fake Penfolds worth over RMB 18 million – the biggest haul of counterfeit Penfolds – just five months after 14,000 knock-offs were seized in Shanghai last November, highlighting the scale of counterfeits in the Chinese mainland market. The crime ring has been producing fake Penfolds since April last year, police said, however what makes this crime ring different from previous busts is that the gang has developed a “sophisticated network” of production and distribution, and seems to have only targeted Penfolds premium wines that sell between RMB 500 and RMB 8,000 .
