The Antique Wine Company Offers The Finest Wines In All The Lands01.29.15

 

Since 1982, Stephen Williams has traveled the word buying the finest and most exclusive selections of wines. Although it started as a hobby for a connoisseur, the Antique Wine Company has become renowned for offering the rarest and finest wines to its more than 45,000 clients. Stephen had helped the cast and crew of the Titanic celebrate their victories at the Academy Awards in 1997 by presenting them with a rare and precious bottle of wine, a premier cru Bordeaux from 1912, the year the Titanic sank. His gift also included a reprint of The Times from that era. His cultured and refined taste includes gift giving. This gift focused interest from the US who had once been his largest customer. Now China and Hong Kong alone make up more than half of the business that the Antique Wine Company does and is where its second headquarters is located.

 

The Antique Wine Company buys wine directly from the chateaux and has such a renowned reputation for acquiring rare and precious wines that many supplies approach Stephen. Stephen purchased every wine vintage from 1860 to 2003 from the Chateau d’Yqem and it was bought as a collection by the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat on the French Riviera in 2007. One purchase that Stephen called “history and nostalgia in a bottle” because it was bottled while Beethoven was composing music and Napoleon’s attempt to conquer the world is an 1811 vintage from the same chateau.

 

The cabinets are made as models of the nine most famous Bordeaux chateaux. The cabinets hold 18 bottles, are temperature controlled, and hold the best vintages of the past 100 years from each of the nine estates. The Antique Wine Company also offer their Wine Academy, accredited private wine master classes for both professionals and wine enthusiastic. The accredited learning includes tutored and themed tasting events. The AWC Wine Academy, located in Marylebone, London with their headquarters, can provide the ideal environment for private wine tasting and corporate events. The courses created by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is an excellent opportunity for anyone entering the hospitality and wine profession and can provide an enjoyable learning experience for anyone who is enthusiastic about and are interested in fine wine.

 

Whether a novice or connoisseur, they offer now only the finest and rarest wines in the world but also a unique learning experience, assistance in planning wine tasting events, and a unique environment to enjoy the experience.

Meet Some People Down There

You may now know what you are looking for, but your friends in Brazil will know exactly what to look for.

Learn The Exchange Rate

You want to make sure that you are familiar with the exchange rate when you begin investing. The investments that you do in Brazil are going to be profitable only if you are investing with a very strong dollar. You do not want to spend any of your money on an investment unless the dollar is performing as well as it possibly can.

File Your Paperwork

You need to make sure that you have all your paperwork in to government and regulatory boards before you trade. They need to know that you are registered to trade in the country, and they need this information for tax purposes. If you fail to file this paperwork, you may be barred from investing.
