Think twice before you buy that Chinese bottle of wine—it may not be wine at all.
Chinese state media reported on Monday, the Jiahua, Yeli, and Genghao wineries in China's wine-famous Changli county have been accused of adding chemicals to their wines and forging labels from other wine makers. The wineries have been shut down pending investigation.
Some of the wines are said to contain no actual fermented grape juice—just sugar water and chemicals.
This is a big blow to a region that has been nicknamed "China's Bordeaux," where the wineries are the main economic engine.
Wine merchants in the Mainland are pulling the tainted bottles from their shelves and consumer confidence in domestically produced wine is going down.
