The Fhior Wine Club was borne from a desire to share our passion for remarkable wines and to shine a spotlight on the people that produce them – the care, hard work and passion that goes into making these exceptional wines.
The wines we choose speak to the soul - there is a frankness, purity and simplicity shared by great wines across varieties, countries and regions. Our tastings bring to focus wines you’re unlikely to see elsewhere – obscure or unfashionable grape varieties, the unseen side of renowned regions, independent producers forging unconventional paths.
Our ethos is based on finding wines that have a true sense of place and identity. Those that tell the story of the soil and land from which they come, and are produced with care and respect for their environment. We champion wines that eschew chemical inputs, use regenerative agriculture and avoid manipulation in the cellar.
At the helm is Fhior Sommelier, Stuart Skea. With 12 years in the industry under his belt, Stuart learned his craft by working with some of Scotland's best wine lists and top Sommeliers, as well as competing in competitions and studying the WSET and Court of Master Sommeliers programmes.
Stuart’s passion was sparked by a fortuitous work trip to Bordeaux 15 years ago – a trip that involved some visits to top Chateaux and estates, along with the necessary sampling along the way. His curiosity and exploration continues to this day. One simply never stops learning in the world of wine.
