The Western Force is delighted to announce Vintage Fine Wine Distributors (VFWD) as the new wine supplier for the 2022 season.

VFWD is a privately-owned wholesale wine importation and distribution business established in 2016 primarily to service the independent retail trade and on-premises establishments in Western Australia.

VFWD will be supporting the Force during the 2022 season through the provision of fantastic wines for our corporate events as well as providing great offers for our Members. 

VFWD imports directly from France, Italy and South Africa. They also represent an increasing number of ultra-premium Australian producers including Bird in Hand (Adelaide Hills), Schild Estate (Barossa Valley) and Rosenthal Wines (Great Southern) that feature and focus on wines of provenance and regionality.  

They run a low-cost operation and can offer competitive prices against other distributors in Perth. The primary focus for VFWD is on a range of emerging and boutique producers for which they hold exclusivity and therefore can deliver a point of difference to customers. 

The range has been meticulously tasted and judged by one of the Directors, Blair Hill DipWSET before being introduced into the portfolio.

“What attracted us to the Western Force was the desire to be associated with a very exclusive brand, as we believe that our two organisations share a common cultural and the professional mentality in terms of service to clients and members,” Hill explained.

"We regard this partnership as being of mutual benefit for both parties with the Western Force members being able to access premium wine from a number of various award-winning wineries throughout Australia and around the world.”
