Since Anne Jasper and Rob Groh took the leap to start The Vine in 2000, the goal has never been to be the biggest, most all-encompassing wine agency in the province or the country. Instead, they set out to offer a focused selection of wines that reflect their personal taste and interests. They believe that smaller wineries - estate oriented and family-owned - provide the best source of characterful wines that deserve our attention.
The portfolio speaks for itself – this is a collection of great wines, selected and supported by people who have taken the time to get to know the people behind the wines. Most of the winery owners they represent in Ontario are people they are proud to consider friends.
In 2003, they began working with the benchmark Ontario winery Cave Spring Vineyard in a partnership that is more than merely representation; it is a sharing of ideals put into daily practice. Ian D’Agata, respected contributor to Decanter, Vinous and other journals, recognized Cave Spring as ‘arguably Canada’s best winery’. We’re proud to now be part of the Cave Spring family.
