A Team of Experts
Fine wines demand a fine palette. Our small team of dedicated professionals act as your personal wine experts.
A true “Renaissance” guy with talents for tennis, guitar, cars, wine and business, Mark aptly named his company when he started over 20 years ago. As president of both Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd. and Clarus Wine & Spirits Ltd., he has successfully guided both operations to the top of their respective markets. With more than 1,000 products of the world's greatest wine brands and estates, the combined portfolios confirm our position as Canada's most diversified wine importer.
Jason has wine sales experience in almost every province in Canada and knows what it takes to build a successful team around him. As our General Manager, Jason has developed a well trained roster of sales professionals. His even keeled approach and direct personality means we always know where we stand with each other and what we need to accomplish. With no job being too tough for Jason, Clarus has a willing and strong leader with an eye for future growth.
