Wine Cellars International Ltd.


About Us


Wine Cellars International was established in 2001 when Mario D. Cassano was visiting his beloved birthplace in Puglia.  His keen eye for business and passion for Apulian wines was a perfect marriage that blossomed into a business importing wines into Canada.

These beginnings marked representation of five wineries, each with a long history of vinting indigenous grapes from the celebrated region of Puglia: Primitivo, Negromaro and Nero di Troia grapes. Mario built the company’s foundation from this exquisite terroir that boasts Italy’s second largest wine producing region. His passion came on and fed after a 25-year odyssey to discover the hidden gems of Ontario’s wine lovers. This journey led to the creation of the wine: Passo del Sud with his great friend Benedetto Lorusso!

Since its humble roots focused on Italy, Wine Cellars International has grown into a large, global portfolio. With a dedicated team that operates with a high level of integrity, honesty and above all passion for bringing fine wines to their customers table. The team’s focus on their customers, suppliers and industry partners has paid off over the last 20 years. These relationships allow the team to provide the highest level of service, education and value. Our mission is and always will be; to provide great quality wines at a quality value, with the highest quality of service!
