Four contributors to Grape Wall of China have talked to sources in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing who report that China Customs is investigating wine importers. The inquiry seems to be targeted at firms that under-declare the value of their imports. Two well placed industry sources say that staff members are being questioned, with one source calling the inquiry “routine.” Rumors abound about the detention of high-profile people from wine companies, but none of them are confirmed. Expect to hear more about this story.
