The French Wine People
The French Wine People was launched in 1979 when Frenchman Jean-Claude Schmitt returned to England with his Derbyshire born wife Suzanne. The French Wine People are traditional wine merchants with customers throughout Great Britain and Europe.
The French Wine People are wine importers, wine wholesalers, restaurant wine suppliers, and retailers. Over the past twenty years, we have built up a good reputation for sourcing fine French wines from small Chateaux and vineyards, where we personally know the growers. Many are award-winning wines which are only available in the UK through us.
Through group buying, we also supply some of the smaller, boutique orientated brands, at competitive prices, or wines with “ personality “ from most countries in the world. Cristal Champagne from Louis Roederer in Reims or the full range from Cloudy Bay wines from New Zealand are just two examples.
