The biggest independent wine bottling company in Bordeaux, the Société d'Embouteillage du Dehez (SED), has gone into administration.

The rescue plan for the Blanquefort-based company is likely to entail cutting 65 jobs from a total workforce of 120.  

The ownership of SED has changed hands frequently over the past few years but the company has struggled to find a stable financial position. The enduring crisis in the Bordeaux wine industry has only servedto exacerbate the company's difficulties.

In 2003, SED was acquired by MitSiu, a local bottling, packaging and wine logistics firm, which has bottled wine for the Tesco retail chain.
