Curiously named Australian wine site Vinomofo announced today that it’s raised its first major round of funding, $19 million (AUD $25 million), from fellow Aussie Blue Sky Venture Capital.

Vinomofo says it raised the funds to expand its self-described “most epic wine site on the planet” for “wine-loving mofos” into New Zealand, the U.K., Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and the U.S.

The company says it’s on track to exceed $50 million in revenue this year, five years after it launched as a daily deals site for wine fans. During those five years, the company’s founders reportedly sold the company and bought it back, and have now grown the team to 100 staffers.
