Internationally Acclaimed ‘From the Cask’ Oil, Vinegar, Spirits and Wine Shop Assures Customers a Love-at-First-Taste Experience
One taste and you will be hooked.
Just ask local husband-wife business team Chris and Kristin Vetromile, the duo bringing vomFASS to Austin. An enlightening experience that the Vetromiles just had to share with their community, vomFASS is an oil, vinegar, spirits and wine retail concept where every in-shop product is ready for sampling “from the cask” [the English translation of vomFASS], encased in tantalizing cask pyramids, glass balloons and vinegar and oil crocks. Situated in West Lake Court at 3663 Bee Cave Rd. #4H, the shop is destined to bring foodies and slow food advocates across the city to a gathering place with flavors to make every home-cooked meal and dinner party exceptional.
The Vetromiles announced today a multi-event Grand Opening weekend from Thursday, June 20 through Saturday June 22 to kick-off vomFASS’ entrance into the market, creating a celebration where community members can soak in all that the shop has to offer, complete with specially prepared food, drinks and exclusive events. The Grand Opening events kick off Thursday at 5:30 p.m. with an official ribbon cutting hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.
It continues on Friday evening with an original chef cooking demonstration at the test kitchen of next-door business Breed & Co. Local chefs will wow event goers with dishes featuring vomFASS oils and vinegars. Once the demonstration ends, the party continues back at vomFASS where guests will enjoy the fruits of the chefs’ labor along with specialty cocktails. Saturday is set to feature hors d’oeuvre and drinks featuring vomFASS products mixed with the creative minds of area chefs, bartenders and foodies.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with a world-class brand known for delivering the best oils, vinegars, spirits and wines to customers with a taste-before-you-purchase experience,” Chris Vetromile said. “It has always been a dream of ours to open a shop here in Austin — we now have made this a reality with the wildly successful vomFASS brand.”
The Vetromiles are taking a proactive approach to helping customers make sound cooking and dietary decisions. They enjoy introducing customers to the health and taste benefits of a Mediterranean Diet. More of a lifestyle than a diet, the plan is reliant on plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts, olives and olive oil, along with moderate amounts of cheese, yogurt, fish, poultry eggs and wine. These foods form the basis of the plan and provide the nutrition, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber that protect against chronic disease.
“Chris and Kristin are the perfect pair to bring vomFASS to Austin. They are talented professionals and have a desire for creating the sensory experience that defines our brand,” said Justin Gibson, president of Madison, Wisconsin-based vomFASS USA. “Given their drive, we’re very confident they will be helping Austin residents make the tastiest, healthiest decisions for years to come.”
vomFASS has spread like wildfire across Europe since its launch in German less than twenty years ago. Since then, nearly 300 franchise locations have opened worldwide and the brand has won numerous accolades, including Franchise of Year in Germany in 2010 and 2012.
By selling hand-selected imported European oils, vinegars and spirits and offering an educationally flavorful environment for customers, vomFASS USA has eclipsed projected growth figures this year. In just a few short years of franchising here in the United States, the concept has spread among husband-wife teams and partners seeking a hands-on retail venture that encourages local community ties and embraces a distinct shopping experience.
