About The Antique Wine Company
Founded 25 years ago by Stephen Williams and based in London, from the outset The Antique Wine Company has only ever traded in exceptionally fine wine. As one of the world’s foremost wine merchants, the heart of the company’s business is the buying and selling of fine wine – in quantities ranging from complete cellars to individual cases and bottles.
They are distinguished by their history of providing superior collections, their production of exceptional events and their record-breaking fine wine transactions. Over the years they have managed, provided advice on, and constructed wine cellars in châteaux, palaces, grand hotels and exclusive private residences.
From their global headquarters in the United Kingdom, they manage a network of offices, storage facilities and expert advisers across Europe, Asia and North America. This guarantees their ability to rapidly and efficiently assist their clientele, no matter where they are located.
