Toch begrijp ik het vast verkeerd. confused smiley
Veel Australische wijn is blijkbaar vervalst, men verkoopt iets compleet anders dan wat er op de fles staat.
Blijven de Australiërs dan zitten met hun wijnvoorraad?
Als zij toch alles verkopen en de illegale Handel ook dat pikt toch iedereen zijn graantje mee?
Re: New Australian technology to help prevent trillion dollar losses in wine industry

Daarmee sanctioneer je dus fraude omdat kennelijk niemand er last van heeft. Maar er is een flinke groep die er wel last van heeft. De consument die plonk koopt en er vet voor betaalt. De belastingdienst en zoals we in de kop lezen de wijnindustrie die miljarden misloopt. Noem dat maar eens klein bier.
