Our Story

Where We Are Today

Our mission is simple
Our mission is simple – to build wine brands people love. In fact, seven of the top 20 brands in Canada are proudly part of the Arterra Wines Canada family.
We have more than 140 years of experience in the Canadian wine industry, with eight wineries across the country and over 1,700 acres of premium vineyards.
Wine Rack
We own and operate 164 Wine Rack retail stores in Ontario and sell wine kits and products for winemaking through our RJS Craft Winemaking business.

Where We Are Heading

With many iconic and recognized wine brands, we continue to play a role in developing and expanding our wine portfolio to ensure Canadians from coast-to-coast can enjoy and experience wines made both here in Canada and from renowned wine-making regions around the world. Our commitment to our consumers in the quality we provide will always be front and centre in all we do.
In 2006, we were acquired by Constellation Brands, a U.S. based company that is a leading international producer and marketer of beer, wine, and spirits.
In 2016, the Canadian branch of Constellation Brands was acquired by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, and Arterra Wines Canada was born.


In the last five years, our portfolio of wine brands received over 1,500 accolades and awards in national and international wine competitions.
In addition, our Wine Rack training program, “Perfectly Matched with a Career at Wine Rack,” recently won the 2016 Award of Achievement from The Institute for Performance and Learning for all of Canada.


The accolades are a testament to the values our employees are proud to live by: people, courage, quality, consumer first and integrity.

Our People

At Arterra Wines Canada, we come to work every day because of our shared passion for wine and the enjoyment of sharing wine with family and friends. In fact, our success to date and into the future is built on our people. With 2,000+ employees coast-to-coast, it is our teams’ love of learning, collaborating and creating that allows us to continuously establish new benchmarks and build wine brands consumers love.
