Concerned about your wine investment? Offer of assistance by Grant Thornton UK

Where's my Margaux? Where's my Lafite? Where's my Latour? 
Cellars of Château Margaux


Following the BBC's Money Box item on wine investment last Saturday, plus Paul Lewis's appearance that day on BBC Breakfast, the spotlight is firmly on wine investment scams. In February I posted details of a scheme run by Grant Thornton who may be able to assist you if you feel that you have been ripped off. For example if you discover that the bonded warehouse, where you thought your precious wine investment was safely, has either no record of the company you dealt with company or no record of you. 

Here is the post with details of Grant Thornton's UK LLP FinD team

If there are another companies that offer a similar service to Grant Thornton, I will be happy to post details here. 

There will be more on wine investment on BBC Money Box on Saturday starting at noon.

    Dear Jim,

    The above information is incorrect. The accountants at 228A High Street, Bromley confirm they have never had any accountancy or registered address dealings with Bordeaux UK Limited.

  3. We have never been the accountants for Bordeaux Wine Consultancy Ltd., and wish to make it quite clear that we were the Registered Office for the period June 2007 until March 2008, when we requested that the company made alternative arrangements, as we were suspicious of the manner in which the company operated.

  4. Regarding the Anonymous comments of May 3 timed at 07.25AM, this should have read BORDEAUX UK LTD not Bordeaux Wine Consultancy.
