Our Story - Sustainably Grown Wine
A negociant (ne-go-sion) is a French term for a winemaker who buys grapes and makes wine from multiple vineyards to bottle under their trusted brand. The quality of what's in the bottle dictates the trust in the brand.
Our network of growers and winemakers are industry royalty, they are the best. They own the best vineyard sites and craft the best wine. For Epic Negociants.
Making great wine is one passion, sustainability is another. We are leaders in experimenting with carbon emissions reduction in the wine industry. From packaging formats to logistics and our digital operations, we are doing our best to prove solutions which can be rolled out to improve the industry's carbon footprint.
Welcome to our family owned and run negociant business. My name is Andrew Browne and I have been involved in the international wine community since my family planted vines in 1982 to establish the renowned Scotchmans Hill winery in Australia. After growing up in the vineyards and winery and many years studying, tasting and working in the European fine wine markets and our family wine business, we founded EPIC NEGOCIANTS to make a difference.
