The team

Francaboutwine has dedicated sales teams in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland and distribution partners in Western Australia and South Australia. Our sales team all have backgrounds in on-premise roles in hospitality and the wine trade.

The beginning

Francaboutwine was founded by Neil Thomson in 2012 in Sydney. Neil started his career working in the restaurant business in the United Kingdom, where he first found his passion for wine. He later worked in Dubai as a wine importer, before relocating to Australia. Working in so many different markets has given Neil a global perspective on the wine industry.

Passion with perspective

One of our points of difference at Francaboutwine is the perspective we have on the wines we sell and how they fit into a global context. We offer our customers both Domestic and Imported wines so it’s essential we understand not just our wines but their peers and the regions they represent.
