The independent off-licence chain fell into administration in October last year but more than 100 of its 170 stores were later bought by EFB Retail.
An update report by administrator Deloitte, recently made available at Companies House, revealed P&H was one of only two secured creditors.
The wholesaler was owed £3.16m when Wine Cellar collapsed. It was paid £1.3m by the administrator, while the balance was secured when P&H came to a separate agreement with EFB Retail for stock it had supplied to Wine Cellar.
In September P&H cited the loss of business from Wine Cellar and First Quench Retailing, which also collapsed last year, as factors for its 5.2% dip in EBITDA. Wine Cellar's only other secured creditor was Barclays, which was paid £183,000.
The report also revealed that there were "insufficient funds" to pay the unsecured creditors, owed £6.4m in total. HM Revenue & Customs is owed £1.8m.
Wine Cellar traded as Booze Buster, Simply Drinks and Simply Food & Drinks in northern England. It made pre-tax losses of £956,000 in the year to January 2008 against sales of £62.6m.
