Stephen Williams, CEO and Managing Director, The Antique Wine Group
Stephen Williams is CEO and Managing Director of The Antique Wine Group, a globally renowned fine wine company that he founded in 1982 and which now has over 45,000 clients in more than 100 countries.
Stephen has become one of the world’s leading experts on fine and rare wine and he has created some of the greatest wine cellars in the world - in châteaux, palaces, wineries, hotels and private residences across Europe, Asia and North America. He is known for buying and selling some of the world’s finest wine collections. (Read more >)
Currently, Stephen Williams is the leading fine wine merchant actively championing wine authentication via his sponsorship of the CEBG Bordeaux Centre for Nuclear Studies. The Centre conducts research into fine wine provenance via ground-breaking methods that verify the age of both glass bottles and the wine contained within.
Stephen also enjoys sharing his immense knowledge of the fine wine business which has led him to become a popular commentator on the industry. Frequently quoted by the global press, he also presents an entertaining series of wine programmes on Monaco’s Riviera Radio, as well as a yearly series on the ins-and-outs of the Bordeaux En Primeur process. Stephen’s popular blog also gives readers a rare insider’s view into the fine wine business and the personalities behind it.
Born and raised in Derbyshire, England, Stephen started his fine wine business in the north of England in 1982, originally basing himself at Thorpe Hall in Staffordshire, before moving the company to London. Prior to his work in wine, he began his career with Barclays Bank, followed by two years in the insurance industry where his interest in fine wine developed as he entertained clients. Shortly thereafter, he spotted a gap in the market, selling very fine wines to individuals. The rest, as they say, is history.
Once named the “Sherlock Holmes of Fine Wine,†Stephen is known for travelling the world to track down the rarest and most sought-after vintages. Along with his wife and two children, Stephen splits his time between homes in London and the South of France. He can often be found flying them around Europe in his Cessna light aircraft, as aviation is his other great passion in life.

AWC's managing director Stephen Williams sees this sort of event as a "catalyst, bringing people together in an entertaining way for both sensual and intellectual pleasure," and he also made the point, of which we do need reminding in today's tasting and score-oriented wine market, that "we so often taste and judge in a sterile environment; we also need to drink and enjoy these wines with food, too."
