About Barrique Fine Wines

Our firm belief is that wine is better experienced when it’s understood, but learning about wine can be intimidating. The wine industry can appear exclusive and unapproachable. We want to do our part to break down those barriers, bringing you delicious wines made simple.

Founder - Edd Simpson DipWSET

Edd fell in love with wine in an unlikely place – Dubrovnik, Croatia. In a small wine bar, down a winding side street, a tasting of 6 local wines was enough to spark a passion, which Edd has been honing ever since. 

Edd joined the wine trade with Yorkshire Vintners in 2017, where he quickly progressed to lead the buying and sales teams. During his time there, Edd also completed his WSET Diploma and has ambitions to embark on the Master of Wine Programme. 
Edd founded Barrique Fine Wines in August 2020.
