This is good news as Blakeney Bridge Wine Ltd targetted the elderly to persuade them to make wine investments.

    In April 2012 in the forum someone posting as “Beckenham Eagle” flagged up Blakeney Bridge Wine Ltd as one of the many companies forming part of an investment fraud ring based in Bromley – follow this link.....

    On the same page - scroll to the bottom -the Blakeney Bridge Wine Ltd fraudsters threatened legal action. I wonder how far they got.

  2. Edited comment from Croydon Anon:

    Can someone let me know why the Wine Investment Association has not been wound up yet?

    Just browsing the latest accounts shows Vin-X have posted a net worth of £-152,855 !!! (see for more)

    Peter Shakeshaft is still claiming to be CEO of "the UK's fastest growing fine wine investment company"

    1. The directors of the WIA could decide to wind up the organisation. Otherwise the company would be wound up if it failed to file accounts/annual returns or if there was a petition to wind up the company in the public interest. The WIA's filings are up to date and it is hard to see on what public interest grounds the WIA could be wound up.
