Portugal’s health and Safety authority ASAE has seized 4,536 bottles of fake sparkling wine worth over €5,000 in Águeda, in northern Portugal.

ASAE said this week that it had launched an inspection to combat the illegal preparation, distribution and sale of wines in Águeda.

The winemaker is now being taken to court for mislabelling the wine as quality sparkling wine without complying with the obligatory production process.
