'I can confirm that on 23 November 2011 a winding up Order was made against Seale Wines Ltd (“the company”) on the petition of the Secretary of State, on public interest grounds. On the making of the winding up Order the Official Receiver was appointed as liquidator of the company. On the making of a winding up order the Official Receiver has a duty to investigate the cause(s) of failure and generally, the promotion, formation, business, dealings and affairs of the company, pursuant to section 132 of the Insolvency Act 1986. As liquidator of the company the Official Receiver has a duty to realise any assets or property of the company for the benefit of its creditors. Furthermore, in the event of any misconduct having taken place in the company the Official Receiver has the power to apply to court for the disqualification of anyone that may have acted as a director of the company, pursuant to section 6 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986.
Anyone that is owed money by the company should send me an email with the following information:
Your full name;
You full postal address;

Any other information you feel may be of assistance.
