About us

Thank you for visiting our website. By way of introduction, we should like to offer our services as a family limited company of fine wine merchants founded in 1975. Our core business is the creation of individual cellars, for drinking, investment or quite often both. We offer classic European wines for our private clients worldwide though particularly in Great Britain and Asia.

We take pride in offering a bespoke and personal service, visiting clients personally to discuss their cellars in all our main markets at least once a year, Hong Kong and Singapore twice. We have an excellent and dedicated team at Farthinghoe, always willing to go the extra mile. We feel confident that we can offer you a unique service.

The Chairman, Simon Cox, who sadly passed away in 2013, was a Master of Wine (MW) with over 35 years' experience in the trade. His son Alex joined the business in 1997 and is now Managing Director. He had the good fortune of a year's wine-making experience in South Africa and at Chateau Rausan-Segla, 2nd Growth Margaux in 1998, followed up with two years of theory to achieve the WSET Wine Diploma qualification. He is also an Associate of the Institute of Wines and Spirits.

Our clients, whose differing tastes and inclinations we have the expertise to meet, enjoy drinking good wine, are interested in the subject, have varying degrees of knowledge, but all are keen to explore the subject and take sound professional advice. In any event, they realise that to start to lay down a cellar now will pay huge dividends in the long run. Their wine will be stored in perfect conditions under our supervision in Octavian Bonded warehouse, the market leader in the UK. It remains free of all taxes until delivered in the UK or abroad.
