WENZHOU, China, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Chinese authorities said they have uncovered a stash of 10,000 bottles of suspected counterfeit wine that would be worth about $16 million if it was authentic.

Police in Wenzhou, south of Shanghai, said the bottles labeled Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, a popular wine with China's wealthy, were found in a house belonging to a man who said he thought the domicile had been unoccupied for nine years, the BBC reported Friday.

The Huffington Post reported police spoke to a man who had been seen caring for the dogs, but he told them he did not have contact information for his employer.
