The Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, formerly the Department for Trade and Industry, has issued proceedings against Bordeaux Fine Wines Ltd with a view to compulsory liquidation. An order was made on 19 December 2013 by the court on presentation of the petition for interim insolvency and a provisional liquidator has been appointed.

The Croydon-based firm sold wines from Bordeaux and other fine wine producing regions by cold-calling potential investors.

“The Official Receiver has been appointed provisional liquidator of Bordeaux Fine Wines,” read a statement from the Insolvency Service. “The role of the provisional liquidator is to protect assets in the possession or under the control of the company pending the determination of the petition.

“The provisional liquidator also has the power to investigate the affairs of the company insofar as it is necessary to protect the assets including any third party or trust money or assets in the possession or under the control of the company,” it added.

The return date of the petition is 26 February 2014 and in the meantime those who have bought wine from Bordeaux Fine Wines Ltd are left wondering what has happened to their wine. Edwin Coe has been approached by creditors to represent and protect their interests.
