Our Story

In 1999, brother and sister, Tony Stones and Teresa Barnard visited small, family producers in Champagne and persuaded them to import their champagnes to the UK. A hobby initially, the company grew and in 2008 Tony left the IT world for good, for fizz!

Helen joined Tony and Teresa, then Rebecca joined the party a couple of years later…

They say behind every great man…

Two more ladies Lauren and Sarah joined, then, just so Tony didn’t feel totally dominated, we welcomed Ed. For now the team is complete….there is a queue of willing volunteers who want to join us though!

In those days we were Champagne Warehouse… now we’re a lot more fizzy and bring more than just champagne to the party! So on the back of importing prosecco, cava, selling English sparkling wine and with plans to import fizz from other corners of the world we decided a new name was in order. So, in 2016 we created The Fizz Company.

We don’t sell any old champagne, prosecco or cava. It’s all from small, family producers who are fussy about the quality of fizz that leaves their wineries. They also don’t spend much on marketing so you don’t pay over the odds for the wines you buy on this site. There is not a polo sponsorship deal in sight!

So that’s The Fizz Company…
