WELCH & CO WINE MERCHANTS


Welch & Co have been bespoke suppliers to the on-trade in and around Oxfordshire since the fine sunny vintage of 1988. We are a small firm, local, independent, dedicated to service and good wine - and we love what we do.

From March 2020, given the forced closure of all our bar, restaurant and theatre trade customers, in order to give us something to do during the day we  have  begun selling to private customers in our local community.  S0: Pierre le Vin.

Early days for us, of course, as this is quite a different game. However, we have lots of lovely wine, an efficient distribution resource and healthy and devoted staff, so we imagine we are well placed to make something of it.

Then you drink the wine and smack your lips with pleasure (please keep to the script).

We hope we'll make a good job of it, for we have every intention of still being here when the threat of this new virus has receded and normality - or something as close as possible to it - is resumed.
