Vigorous Brothers | Wine Merchants is a new, modern wholesale wine company.
In 1848, a young Georges Fesq arrived in Sydney as a “super cargo”, selling the wines he had been travelling the world with. Whilst he was soon to begin his own wine importation business, Fesq & Company, on arrival in Sydney he was representing the wines of his uncle’s negociant firm, Vigourous Freres, (Vigourous Brothers). They were Bordeaux negociants from the Quai des Chartrons. After Georges sent a message for more wine to be sent to Australia, and begin trading under his name, we lost track of those brothers and their firm.
We thought it was apt to awaken the old name. Vigorous Brothers started again in 2016.
Vigorous Brothers specialises in emerging and exciting producers from Australia. There is a strong focus on discovery and experimentation. Daniel Jacobson steers Vigorous Brothers after a successful career as a sommelier.
