vinID solves real world challenges
Eleven people, including the owner of a Médoc château and several wine merchants, were arrested last week on suspicion of fraud. Nine other people were questioned. The arrests are related to a suspected wine fraud, which probably involves several hundred thousand counterfeit bottles of wine. This is reported by several French media, among them the France 3 broadcaster and the Sud-Ouest regional newspaper.
While an unpopular topic this shows the need for a new authenticity and transparency standard. It is paramount to equip each bottle of wine with a unique identity (UID) to prevent this kind of wine fraud, where hundred of thousands of bottles are counterfeited.
