Selling expensive French wine diluted with a cheap brand was the beginning of the end for the family company Geens Benelux. After they discovered the fraud 500.000 liters of wine was poured down the drain. But when the wine-fraud became public the real problems started, every shop stopped selling wines from this company and Geens Benelux went bankrupt. 70 people lost their job.
