1: Fesq & Company was founded in 1848 when a young man travelled from Bordeaux as a super cargo. Georges Fesq worked for his uncles Vigourous Freres, negociants on the Quai des Chartrons in Bordeaux. A supercargo travelled with the goods, selling them in the various ports of call. Upon arrival in Sydney, Georges decided he wanted to stay and wrote home of his uncles asking for more wine sell. Long before he died in 1899 the business had prospered and been passed to his son. An 1858 advertisement in the Sydney Morning Herald announced a shipment of (amongst others) Chateau Lafite 1848, Chateau Latourblanche Sauternes and “fine Medoc, in hogsheads, guaranteed direct from the vineyards at Margaux district, near Bordeaux”.
