Lulu Island Winery CEO got caught smuggling icewine into China

Update: Chinese officials seize Lulu Island Winery shipments, investigate Canadian operator

I wonder if it will be a long prison term for this guy.

Damn, thought I saw Gulu Island and Chinese in same sentence and feared for the worst.



Seriously? Declaring two bucks a bottle for Ice Wine? Don't mess with the Chinese government, man. I think this is just a misunderstanding - Richmond News?


On the other hand, what about shit from China on eBay or Alibaba? I buy 250 bucks worth of electronics and it shows up with a declared value on the package as 4 bucks, LOL. And I don't even ask them to do it.

declaring $2 per bottle is not the problem, the problem is the CEO of the winery did not line the correct official's pockets with enough cash

I wouldn't be surprised that his costs per bottle might really be somewhere around $2, but I agree with Topec -- the guy did not make his pre-shipping "arrangements" with the right offical before sending things over.

I understand why many mainlanders like to drink ice wine. They like that sweet taste.

In fact, I saw some mainlanders at the restaurant Brix and Mortar recently order glasses of Coke to mix with their Merlot.

Who the heck destroys a glass of Merlot by adding Coke to it???

LOL mixing red wine with coke is a thing Europeans do to make cheap wine last longer.

Leave it up to Mainlanders to totally miss the concept by using fine wine.

Obviously you guys have not see Mainlanders gulp down a $2000 bottle of Chateau Lafite like it was water in a drinking contest...

Fine wine? Alcohol is alcohol is alcohol. Maotai, Wuliangye, Erguotou, soju, Bordeaux red wine / white wine... all the same.

Actually, I suppose the Mainland Chinese government is really fretting over the underground outflow of Chinese money now:

China?s CITIC Bank tries to seize real estate assets in Canada - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
China CITIC Bank Corp Ltd has launched a Canadian lawsuit to try to seize the assets of a Chinese citizen the bank claims took out a multimillion-dollar loan in China then fled to Canada, the lender’s Vancouver-based lawyer said on Monday.

The bank is looking to seize numerous Vancouver-area homes, valued at some $7.3-million, along with other assets, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia in Vancouver on Friday.

The defendant, Shibiao Yan, owns three multimillion-dollar properties in a Vancouver suburb and lives in a $3-million Vancouver home owned by his wife, according to court documents.

China is in the midst of a massive corruption crackdown and has stepped up efforts to find fugitives it says are hiding stolen assets abroad. The lawsuit comes amid a debate about the role foreign money, particularly from China, has played in Vancouver’s property boom.

“The person involved left China with a large debt owed,” said Christine Duhaime, a lawyer who represents China CITIC Bank in the case, adding that she was not aware of any criminal charges against the man.

actually in china its 7up with red wine and thats very common here in china, it all started with Li Pang in zhuhai (back story was that he couldn't get use to drinking red wine so he pour some 7up in it, then monkey see monkey do )

i sell wine in china, i have not really met mainlander here that understands wine here (u go to china shows and everyone drinking the liquor and not tasting it)

met lulu island once at wine show in hk, wine was pretty crappy and they keep telling me i dont understand the market (and shit like that)

went pass the winery when i was back in Vancouver and seriously the land is way too small to be doing anything big period, thats with all the grapes perfect for harvest too (which is impossible)
