An Unrivalled Collection
Fells is widely regarded as one of the Uk’s leading Fine Wine distributors and are proud to represent some of the world’s greatest family-owned fine wine producers. Acting as the exclusive UK distributor for the companies featured in this brochure. Together they constitute an unrivalled collection of family-owned businesses whose winemaking achievements are internationally recognised.
THE COMPANY HAS UNDERGONE MANY CHANGES OVER THE YEARS, WITH A LONG HISTORY THAT INCLUDES SOME SIGNIFICANT MILESTONES.
Symington Family Acquisition
The most important of these was the company’s acquisition in 1977 by the Symington Family – the world’s leading premium Port producer. Following this acquisition, the company became the exclusive UK distributor for the whole of the Symington portfolio and sales have grown so substantially over the intervening years that Fells is now regarded as the UK’s category specialist for Port.
Since then Fells have been instrumental in building Torres into one of the UK’s most popular Spanish wine brands. The iconic Torres Vina Sol, for example, is now the UK’s No.1 Spanish white wine and the UK has become the Torres’ No.1 export market as a result of Fells’ success.
2018 marked a significant landmark in the history of Fells when the Hill-Smith family, owners of the famous Yalumba and Oxford Landing Australian wineries joined Fells, giving the company greater scale and an unrivalled position in the premium sector of the UK wine market.
Our Family-Owned Producers
In addition to these producers, Fells also represents an unrivalled portfolio of fine wines from some of the world’s other leading family-owned producers. They include (from France) E Guigal, Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Père & Fils, William Fèvre, Chateau de Poncie, Famille Hugel, de Ladoucette, (from Italy) Barone Ricasoli, Renato Ratti, Tedeschi, Pellegrino, ……
Established in the early 1990’s, Fells are now widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading producers of high quality, premium gift packs and supplies a broad ranges of retailers including bespoke lines to some of the country’s most prestigious names.
