Two brothers have been charged in the UK with allegedly making millions of pounds of wine at a wine-making business they founded in the United Kingdom.
Two brothers, Shiloh and Shilpa Singh, have been accused of buying grapes from the vineyard of the Gershwin estate in Staffordshire, which they opened in 2009.
Gershwine Ltd, which opened its first farm in England in 2010, said on Monday that it has been fined by the Foreign Office and the Home Office.
It said that it was not aware of the charges, which relate to a breach of the Wine and Spirits Act, which prohibits the production, supply or use of wine that has been produced or supplied in breach of public health, safety or morals.
Gesheep Singh is the son of Gersheep and Gurinder Singh, who co-founded the GERSHWIN estate in 2009 with their brother Shilpham Singh.

“The Government is making every effort to bring these men to justice, and we are pleased that the Crown Prosecution Service is taking a very active role in the investigation,” Gershalwin Estate said in a statement.
The Gershawls, who are from Pune, were not available for comment.
The Singh brothers were not immediately available for a statement to The Associated Press.
The family of Shilh Singh, the company’s managing director, declined to comment.
