European Fine Wines Ltd is the latest wine investment firm in the UK facing liquidation after ceasing trading.
European Fine Wines Ltd stopped trading on 22 May and insolvency specialist Abbott Fielding is preparing the group for liquidation, Decanter.com understands.
A creditors’ meeting will be held on 25th June at the Marriott Hotel in Bexleyheath.
Founded in August 2005 and based in large, self-contained offices in Bromley, south London, European Fine Wines is the latest in a string of failed companies who offered wine investments in the UK.
The company’s collapse is being blamed on a failed attempt to open an office in Hong Kong, with the loss of £800,000.
Jonathan Barr is the sole serving director. Two previous directors, David Evans and Scott Assemakis, were banned in July 2013 from serving as UK directors for 11 years.
The bans were for their involvement in running a series of land banking scams.
