Griffiths is the sole director of Templar Vintners Ltd and was appointed on 30th June 2009. James Allie was appointed company secretary on the same day. Allie is the Liberal Democrat councillor for the Alperton ward in Brent. Allie does not list his appointment as company secretary of Templar Vintners Ltd on the Brent Council register of members’ financial interests.
Equally the claim to have won the 'Fine Wine Specialist Award" (The Which? Wine Guide) 2004' is also bogus: there was no The Which? Wine Guide 2004 published.
