The Antique Wine Company, based in London has been dealing in fine and rare wines and courtesy their brilliance in the taste and quality of their produced wine they enjoy to vendor to more than 20000 customers who are situated in more than 70 countries. The company produces exceptionally fine wine and has currently more than 10000 wine bottles as inventory in their cellar. Not to mention, the company finds itself as record holder for containing the most number of wine bottles as collection.
The company was found back in the year 1982, as mentioned earlier in the city of London. The region is Marylebon in the central London where the ground breaking of the company took place. The company holds the record of having sold the most expensive white wine ever, the wine bottle under discussion is the 1811 Chateau d’Yquem and the price that it was sold on is a steep 75000 pounds. The buyer of the wine intends not to sell it forwards nor does he intend to make an investment out of it, rather he intends to drink it saying that “wine is for drinking” and that he has worked hard to earn this money, rather than having taken the money right out of his packed wallet.
In the year 2013, AWC Global PLC which is a Public Limited Company based in London became the parent company of the Antique Wine Company’s regional trading corporations. Currently, it is engaged in a program expanding years to cater traditional and antique wine markets. Another shining part of their portfolio is that they provided fine antique vintage wines to the former president of the United States, H. W. Bush who turned 70 years. To make things up to the event, the vintage wines were also 70 years old.
The company made a purchase worth 110000 pounds at the auction of Hospices de Beaune in which the purchased lot contained 460 liters of the rare Corton red wine. Apart from simply selling off rare and fine wines, the company also specializes in the provision of classes for mastering wine sciences and in planning the constructions of cellars for the purpose of wine production. Company CEO Stephan Williams said that what he aimed for was to make a wine that people would like to buy time and again after having tasted it once. The staff of the company comprises of just 15 people and the turn out that he expects from the company courtesy his efforts is more than 20 million pounds.
