Firth & Co is a wine merchant seeking out interesting well made wines from around the world and offering good value.
A cornerstone of the company is personal service and also excellent wine knowledge to help you choose and hopefully learn a few new things whist ordering! The range is constantly being added to as we find new producers and some will be de-listed if and when their quality drops.
We supply hotels, restaurants and private customers all are important. All orders can be mixed and minimum is just 12 bottles.
“We continue to offer a very personal and hard working service to the hotel and restaurant trade and can be flexible enough to suit most requirements. So let us know if we can do more.”
Quality of service is one of the most important things to be measured on in business and that is something we feel is a vital factor when differentiating one business from another and also when deciding who to buy from.
We are working hard to ensure that we do the simple things well and to progress with very high quality service.
The Firth & Co wine list is founded on expertise built over 35 years in the wine business.
“My passion for providing not only the very best range of handpicked quality wines, but also the highest level of personal service is at the heart of the company. I will enjoy the opportunity of working closely with you to ensure that Firth & Co always offer a range of interesting and well priced wines that meet your requirements and introduce you to something new. I hope that our current list will do just that.”
