FIRST WINE PRODUCER
Vincenzo Geloso left Italy in 1957 with his wife and his two children, Nicolangelo and Antoine, to settle in Montreal where Aldo, his third son, was born in 1960.
In 1961, he obtained a loan from Scotiabank and created a wine-making company, Ruviano. In 1965, the Quebec Liquor Board granted the first wine producer’s licence, 001, to the Maison des Vins Geloso, making it the first Quebec winery.
Today, we are more than 450 employees in 5 warehouses across Quebec, distributing in more than 6000 stores. Since its foundation, the history of Geloso is one of passion, devotion and constant growth.
