Stephen Williams (The Antique Wine Company) – a clarification
I have recently received several messages from worried clients of the Premier Bordeaux Wine Company. One of the sales people at the Premier Bordeaux Wine Company uses the name Stephen Williams, which may well not be his real name. Unfortunately people have wrongly jumped to the conclusion that this Stephen Williams is the Stephen Williams of the long established Antique Wine Company that was founded and has been run by Stephen Williams for best part of 20 years.
I contacted Stephen Williams at The Antique Wine Company today to alert him to the confusion and am very happy to make it clear that there is no connection between the two Stephen Williams and no connection between the two companies.
Stephen Williams (The Antique Wine Company):
'As you suspected, this is nothing to do with me and I am naturally concerned that our clients and others could wrongly associate me with Premier Bordeaux Wine Company.
For the past twenty years and more, I have run The Antique Wine Company, we are a properly constituted wine merchant supplying fine wine mainly for consumption rather than investment, to satisfied clients in the UK and around the world.'
I trust that Mr Sypros Constantinos of the Premier Bordeaux Wine Company will immediately advise his saleman to chose another name. Better still would be to put the sales force on gardening leave while the Premier Bordeaux Wine Company ensures that they have sourced all the wine that their clients have purchased.
