Tina’s success has been built on a clear mission: to inspire a great wine culture by connecting wine lovers with real people who make great wine.

Tina inherited a strong entrepreneurial spirit from her late father, Pierluigi Tolani, who immigrated from Italy and built the largest privately held transport company in Canada.

In Memoriam - Rebecca Lechman (1977 - 2020)

Rebecca was an intrinsic and beloved part of our family for 7 years. She was the first to say hello, the first to give her opinion, and the first to help. She was the mother hen of our staff, always there to take co-workers under her wing and help them shine. Rebecca was terrifically honest and had a wicked sense of humor.

We celebrate her accomplishments - from earning her Sommelier designation to becoming a key member of our teaching staff. Her spirit will live on among us with this mantra to guide us: What Would Rebecca Do?

Cheers to you Rebecca, truly one of a kind.

With love, your work family.
