Number of bottles of counterfeit wine intended for sale in China recently seized at sea by customs agents from Hong Kong. Most of the wines (valued at $25.6 million) were Penfolds, one of Australia’s best-known brands. The massive raid also uncovered 22 tons of expensive foods (dried shark fins, dried sea cucumbers), 140,000+ electronic goods, 70,000 vinyl records, 4,000 boxes of medicine, and several endangered species.
