Full Time

  Cru Wine Merchants (http://www.cruwinemerchants.com)

  Niagara, Ontario

Cru Wine Merchants is a leading importer of premium wines into Ontario. At Cru, we are guided by the age-old adage that great wine is grown, not made. We know that the people who grow great wines are integral in the cycle. We understand the efforts and anxieties that go into growing wine. We live it daily in our own vineyard, Stratus, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Our Cru portfolio is comprised of winegrowers the world over who believe, above all else, that their wines speak of a place, of a year – of a ‘somewhere-ness.’

We have chosen to represent wines that capture the essence of the vineyard they come from. We have chosen to represent people who, at the end of the day, we would like to break bread with, around a table with their wine flowing.
