Matthew Clark has sold its Scottish wine wholesale arm, Forth Wines, to a group of private investors.

Forth MD Kenny Gray will be given a "senior role in Matthew Clark" and the rest of the 51 employees will stay with the business.

George Thomson, formerly a commercial director of Diageo Scotland, is Forth's new MD.

"Forth Wines remains the leading independent wine supplier, and will continue to grow," said Matthew Clark MD Steve Thomson. "This deal will allow us to concentrate on other areas while remaining committed to the Scottish market."
