The Antique Wine Company (AWC) is marking its twenty-fifth anniversary by unveiling a rather special wine case at the Fair. It is made from a three hundred and twenty year old oak tree from Versailles which is reputed to have been one of Marie Antoinette’s favourite trees.

It became a victim of drought in 2005 and was felled, with the wood being purchased by Cordier Mestrezat of Bordeaux. Their craftsmen then designed and created this unique piece.

It contains four special bottles of wine which are rarely available on the open market –Château Petrus, Château Latour, Château d’Yquem and Domaine de la Romanée Conti La Tache – which are all 1990 vintage, reflecting the AWC’s special anniversary. A real connoisseur’s treat!
