SELLING WINE AND TELLING STORIES
ONE VINEYARD AT A TIME
The Small Winemakers Collection Inc. specializes in small and family-owned wineries from around the world.
Our business started in 1991, with a conversation literally over a water cooler. Wouldn’t starting a wine importing business be a great way to write-off international travel? At that time, Ontario did not have the wine culture it does today, and we thought there was no way it could ever become a serious business. Boy, were we wrong. Over the years, the hospitality industry grew and wine become central to people’s lives. We were lucky enough to be along for the ride. Today we sell to thousands of restaurants and private clients throughout the province.
Since our inception, product quality has been at the forefront of our collection. We represent producers with international acclaim:
- Biondi Santi, Fenocchio and Montepeloso – Italy
- Spottswoode, Dunn and Viader – California
- Codorniu and Scala Dei – Spain
- Philippe Leclerc, Marc Sorrell and Vidal-Fleury – France
- Gaia Estate – Greece
As well, we carry a number of good value wines from consistent and reliable estates such as Luigi Righetti (Italy), Coastal Vines (California) and Kingston Estates (Australia).
