Fine Wine Vintners Ltd: first annual return overdue

'As one of the UK’s leading fine wine traders we are ideally positioned to assist clients to identify and acquire wines with the greatest potential to appreciate. We combine financial discipline, market insight and wine knowledge to optimise returns.'

Quote above from Fine Wine Vintners website.

'Optimise returns'? Probably a little too early to judge as the company was founded just over a year ago on 4th June 2009 but apparently unable to file its annual company return on time as require by UK company law. Some of the 'discipline' mentioned above required I'd suggest.

'There are currently opportunities for ambitious, entrepreneurial team spirited individuals, who have the zest to succeed in a high-pressure environment.'

From the careers section of the Fine Wine Vintners website.


  1. I've just taken a cold call on my direct line at the office from a very high-pressure salesman from this outfit. I immediately put him on hold while I "shut the office door" and invited a couple of my colleagues in to listen in on the speaker while the individual gave me a spiel of innacurate, misleading, high pressure nonsense and unsubstantiated claims. We listened to him with growing disbelief as I played the part of innocent but ignorant target investor. As I refused to commit to investing there and then, his imaptience grew. Not good at all. I wonder if he will call back......

  2. Oliver. Thank you for this. Would be happy to publish any highlights of this spiel that you can recall.

  3. Has this company been shut down?

    If you go the web site it says they are no longer trading?

  4. There is no indication on Companies House that this company has been closed down. Certainly as you say their website indicates that they are no longer trading.

  5. This company is in administration as of 30th Sept 2010.
