Stephen Williams seemed to understand the meaning of the statement. For three decades now, his company has flourished to be one of the best wine merchants of his time. Venturing into the wine business was a real risk given that wine is not taken by a high percentage of people. It’s considered expensive by most people and as a result it’s always left to the “richâ€. Wine is good for the stomach so does the doctor says; however only a few can afford it. Stephen Williams, the founder and the managing director of the AWC, come from a poor background. He was the firstborn in a family of three. They lived in an industrial town in Ripley, Derbyshire. Having being brought up by a single mother who struggled to make ends meet; he knows very well what it means to sleep on a partial empty stomach. His father who used to sell cigarettes left them when he was 10 years. At a tender age of 14, he used to work in a DIY store during the weekends. The money he got from the shop was used to add onto his mother’s meagre earnings to support the family. He used to sneak out and attend parties in his neighbor’s houses. Wine was mainly served for the principal guest and adults. However, he would hide and taste wine that was left by the guest, and he enjoyed the taste. Little did he know that one day he will be the owner of one of the best wine producer company.
According to founder Stephen Williams to The Sunday Times, rare and fine wines are the main endeavor of the company.
