The move follows a petition to the High Court by the Insolvency Service.

In 2012, BFW had a turnover of GBP19.3m. Dividends payable totaled GBP4.7m and it sponsored the Racehorse Owners Association’s horseracing awards that same year.  

Gundlach is also a director of Bordeaux Merchants Ltd, Capital Wealth Venture Limited, Hunter & Reynolds Ltd and Invest in Storage Ltd.
