About Us

Vintage Trade – Our 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 22 years, taking pride in offering exclusive wines from extraordinarily dedicated vintners and actively traveling to seek new “gems”.

What’s 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.

The Team at Vintage Trade

Vintage Trade is made up of passionate, experienced, and knowledgeable individuals.
We’re here to bring you a lasting wine experience. Let us know if you have any questions!

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. To contact me, please call (289) 242-1496 or email me at david@vintagetrade.com
