Nick Stacy


{Founder & Managing Director}
Nick’s love affair with wine began at 16 years of age; working in hospitality, he quickly developed a underage cellar of some of Australia’s great wines and by 23, had commenced his first wine distribution business, based in Perth, Western Australia. Within ten years, Nick created a stunning portfolio of some of the best Australian and international wine producers and in 2003, sold the business to a small French concern (LVMH). Later that year, Nick joined Great Southern producer, West Cape Howe Wines as Sales & Marketing Manager and developed the Vinaceous Wines brand in 2007 as partner, visionary and Managing Director. With a love of Chablis, women, vintage sports cars and with great humour, Nick works, lives and breathes the wine game. In both 2011 and 2013, Nick was included in Wine Business Monthly Top 50 Stars of the Australian Wine Industry.
