Having looked at the individual case price of the wines attached, they appear very much over priced.
They also claim to have been trading wines for over 10 years.’

Thank you very much for your email. I am not in the office right now, so I am unable to elucidate what the prices are concerning the fine wines you have requested.
As an overview, our prices vary depending on the source of the product, the availability and the usual market pricing indexes - which I am sure you are aware of. There is quite a large fluctuation and variation in prices as at times we are quite far down the supply chain (hence higher prices) and other times we are near to the source or we own the product ourselves (hence lower prices). We cannot publish a set price list as do Bordeaux Index for instance. When we are selling on behalf of a client, they set the price and we advise the saleability and facilitate the sale - if possible - and gain a 10% broker fee.
We are in the process of purchasing a very large consignment of vintage wines. We will be wholesaling them to suppliers as well as selling them directly. This will have a major benefit to the market place and will help to keep some of the wines in Europe as opposed to sending everything to Asia!
Having read some of your blogs for the first time today, I would like to wholeheartedly support your contribution to the integrity of the wine industry. It is a shame that a minority spoil it for others by bringing the market into disrepute. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
