Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

China’s unmatched counterfeiting skills seemed to reach a new peak with the recent discovery of an entirely fake Apple Store in Kunming. But other shady salesmen are now taking the faking in another high-end direction: the counterfeiting of vintage French wines.

Industry experts says more and more “French wine,” whose actual origins are yet to be determined, is being sold in Chinese supermarkets. The products are blended with sweet water, coloring and even artificial flavors. Still they are listed under the name of “Vin de Bordeaux.”

Some have even been sold under the name of a prestigious 30-year-old vintage wine. “There are more bottles of 1982 Chateau Lafite in China than were ever produced in France,” quips Romain Vandevoorde, a Beijing-based wine importer.
