Full Time

  Colio Estate Wines Inc. (

  Toronto Central, Ontario


Established in 1980, the Colio Estate Wines story is one of patience, determination, and perseverance – qualities that still remain at the heart of our winemaking practices and spirit. It was along the sunny shores of Lake Erie, the southernmost and warmest wine region of Ontario, where three Italian bricklayers named Alfredo, Enzo and Tiberio decided to fulfill their life dream of building a world-class winery. 

Over 35 years later, consumers continue to enjoy the rewards of the hard work and craftsmanship that are poured into every bottle of Colio Estate wines. The picturesque winery is located in Harrow in the heart of the Essex/Pelee Island Coast Wine Country.  From those humble beginnings we have grown to be one of the largest wine producers in Ontario, producing in excess of 500,000 cases of quality wine annually. Our wines are available at LCBO stores and any of the 14 Colio Wine Boutiques across the province.  More at:


Established in 2007, nestled in the famous Blue Mountains, the heart of Canada’s apple country, Thornbury Village Craft Cider House has been producing premium apple cider in a century old historic apple processing facility.  Thornbury cider is traditionally crafted in small batches from locally sourced, pressed apples. The flagship product, Thornbury Premium Apple Cider, is the number one selling, authentic, Ontario-made craft cider. 

The Thornbury Brewery is a proud Ontario Craft Brewer producing award-winning, small-batch crafted European style pilsners and lagers. Most notable brands include Pickup No. 26 Pilsner, which was awarded the Worlds’ Best Czech style Pilsner in 2016. The most recent release is the Heritage ‘1833’ Lager, a golden lager, inspired by the light of the morning sun rising over Georgian Bay, striking the famous Blue Mountains. The original brewery is located in Nobleton, Ontario, and officially opened in July of 2002 with one of the only authentic German decoction brew houses in Canada. Committed to brewing stylistically authentic, ultra-premium beer, the brewery has earned immediate recognition with both discerning beer drinkers and critics alike.  More at:
