Hi, I am Anthony Valitutti the founder of Mondo Wines.
My story begins as far back as I can remember when I was 9 or 10 years of age. I developed a passion for wine after helping my family make homemade wine for many years. As I got older, I realized that this was something that I wanted to pursue.
Being from Toronto but travelling to Montreal frequently I saw Montreal as more of a European City with many affluent restaurants opening up so I decided to start my journey there.
The timing was just right to open a small italian wine agency to cater to these new establishments. I quickly turned my passion into a business and began travelling to Italy more frequently in search of small producers who shared the same vision and creativity for making great wine. I can still remember smelling the grapes in the vineyards and the taste of the wine that came right out of the oak barrels.
After many long flights, full days of wine tasting, meeting great producers and sourcing the best wines that I could find, I couldn’t wait to share my findings with everyone back home.
So here we are today. Mondo Wines has evolved into a boutique wine agency and is now doing business in the province of Ontario.
Not only are we dedicated to sourcing some of the best wines but also some of the best hand-crafted beers and spirits available in today's marketplace. In the years to come we are striving to bring you many more of these great products from many other small producers from all over the world.
