Vintage Trade Mission
Vintage Trade is a small yet passionate team of wine professionals who meet the highest service standards. Vintage Trade represents well researched boutique wines that offer value, winemaking excellence, and exceptional vineyard quality and management. Vintage Trade has been working with the liquor board, private consumers and the hospitality industry for over 10 years. Offering exclusive wines from exceptionally dedicated vintners and actively traveling to seek new “gems” is something in which Vintage Trade takes pride.
What is important to us
- In most cases, we have met and come to know the winemakers and the families that own the vineyards.
- We turn down many more wineries than we represent.
- For regions not yet represented, we are looking carefully. For example, we’re not signing someone just so we can say we have Italian wine.
David Thompson, owner of Vintage Trade
Some people say I have the ‘best job in the world.” In some ways, that may be true, but keeping wines available and working through the LCBO provide great challenges. After 10 years of operating my agency, I’ve finally begun to work out the kinks. The ‘best’ part of my job is finding interesting, and often, unique wines that deliver more than you expect. Your feedback is always welcome. firstname.lastname@example.org
I started working at TVT in 2003 as a part-time bookkeeper. As the business and my interest in wine grew, I became office manager of the company in 2007. I have learned so much about wine being involved in this company. I enjoy the people I work with and the business community that we serve. I look forward to watching the company grow as we experience new and interesting wines added to our portfolio.
