About Us

vomFASS is a European Market and Tasting Room. We feature Extra Virgin Olive Oils, true Balsamic Vinegars, Wine, Craft Spirits & more! The name vomFASS means “From the Cask” in German. The vomFASS concept was born in Southern Germany over 25 years ago and came to the US in 2007 when Father and Son team David and Justin Gibson opened their store in Madison, WI.

vomFASS, both locally and internationally, prides itself on providing the highest quality products for our customers. Working with small family producers throughout the world vomFASS ensures only the finest products make it into our stores and onto your table.

The Owners

Since its founding in 2007, Madison’s vomFASS continues to be locally owned. David Gibson retired from the store in 2016, and Justin and his wife, Lark, assumed ownership of Madison’s vomFASS.

Below, we share some photos of our trips abroad where we were able to meet the producers and educate ourselves on the products. Of course, it would not be a vomFASS experience without a little fun too! We especially enjoyed touring the whisky distilleries in Scotland!


We invite you to stop by and experience vomFASS firsthand. We are open 7 days a week from 10-6. Our motto is “Try Before You Buy”. We encourage you to taste our products and see for yourself what makes vomFASS so special!
