How accurate are the figures on wine fraud?

How big is the market for wine fraud? The short answer is that no one can know for sure, the very nature of illicit markets means getting an accurate number is incredibly difficult. However, there are ways to estimate the size and scope of illicit activity, including wine fraud. The general consensus over the last half decade is that fraudulent wine accounts for about 20% of the total wine market, or $67.9 Billion in 2020.

And what if you could prove that that fingerprint continues through into the grape and then into the wine? And doesn’t change throughout the lifetime of the wine? What then?
