An online local wine subscription platform has shut down abruptly, leaving customers in the lurch with unfulfilled subscription plans amounting to thousands of dollars.

The French Cellar, once touted as the first wine subscription e-commerce platform in Asia, announced on its Facebook page on Tuesday (May 28) that business would cease owing to "difficult business circumstances".

It said it ceased operations on May 27 and is in the process of voluntary liquidation.

The online post did not specify how or if the company would refund its customers. It only said the company could no longer deliver wine and its liquidator would be in touch with customers with information on "how to file a proof of debt".

The company could not be contacted by press time.
