Ten people are under investigation in the French region of Burgundy for a wine-fraud scam that may involve tens of thousands of bottles of wine, much of which could have been sold abroad. According to press reports, the ten people, which include wine merchants, wholesalers and the managing director of a prominent bottling company, have been charged with fraud. They are suspected of mixing expensive wine with low-grade and inferior wines, which were then packaged as high quality products and sold.
