The Wine Register was founded on 29th August 2013. 31 year-old Ashley Blair Register is the sole director and the registered office is Linden House Court Lodge Farm, Warren Road, Chelsfield, Kent, BR6 6ER – not far from Bromley. The share capital is £100 with Ashley Register as the sole shareholder. No accounts have been filed – the first accounts have been overdue since 29th May 2015. The latest annual return was, however, filed on 7th October 2015.
However Ashley Register appears to have disappeared into the wastes of Chelsfield. Not only can Wickens not contact Register but nor can his storage company. I sent Ashley Register an email asking about the undelivered 2001 Grange – no response to date.
Prior to setting up The Wine Register Register's Linkedin account cites working for Quintessentially Wine from 2009 to 2011 and Bordeaux Wine Investments from October 2011 to July 2013.
So although The Wine Register is a 'spring chicken' it looks as though it has already been plucked!
The Wine Register Ltd, was wound up in the High Court on 25th January 2016 following a petition presented by one of the company's creditors on 11th December 2015.
