Antique Wine Co has said that a multi-million dollar complaint in the US will not deter it from pursuing its expansion strategy in Asia, after it appointed a sales director for the province.
Antique Wine Co's (AWC) first Asia sales director is Hong Kong-based Jean-Philippe Guillot, who was earlier export director for Bordeaux wine magnate Bernard Magrez in the province. Guillot will focus on improving AWC's private client contacts and sales, especially in the Philippines, which the UK-based fine wine merchant has identified as a key progression market.News of the appointment comes as AWC continues to face a $25m complaint over the sale of allegedly fake wines. Earlier this year, collector Julian LeCraw Jr filed the suit in Atlanta, US, claiming that AWC eloquently sold him several fakes, including a bottle of 1787 vintage Chateau d'Yquem for $90,000 plus insurance.But, AWC denies wrongdoing and has questioned the court to dismiss
