Effortlessly combining technology and user-experience
Interview with Edouard Dautreix
Modernising a vintage business
What is the story of the business so far?
Friarwood was started by the late Peter Bowen in his mid 20’s. Friarwood grew to become one of the largest wholesaler of wine in the UK in the mid 80’s. Sales declined until the business was purchased by Ben Carfagnini in 2015. With a new management in place, the idea was to rejuvinate the company, focusing on high quality service, flexibility and reliability. The company also started focusing more on business to consumer.
