FINE WINE COMPANY, The

In the Forth-side suburb of Portobello and at nearby Musselburgh you will find Edinburgh wine merchant The Fine Wine Company

logoThe Fine Wine Company Ltd was founded in 2003. When we first started, we believed that there was the need for a good, down to earth, friendly and helpful specialist wine shop offering a range of interesting wines from mostly smaller producers. A sort of antidote to the increasing anonymity and sameness of the big chain stores. It was a struggle at first, but we never compromised on our mission to bring as many as possible of the world’s more interesting and innovative wines to our customers.  We have been rewarded in the enormous increase in wine drinking in the UK and the resulting growth in demand for the more characterful styles.

Good website with easy navigation and online ordering. Decent tasting notes. Wide range – and whilst all their wines may be “fine” this does not look to be the stuffy and pricey emporium that is often associated with the term.

Tastings offered.
