Ruben spent his professionally formative years working in Toronto’s restaurant industry and was widely considered to be amongst the best sommeliers of the time. He made the leap from sommelier to wine importing in 2006 and worked with the top firm of Profile Wine Group for over 10 years. In his capacity there, he was responsible for the large On Premise sales team, portfolio selections and grower relations. Being a resident of Toronto enables Ruben to offer on-ground support to your Winery, along with insider’s knowledge and access to Canada’s biggest wine market.
Raised on a steady diet of Killer B’s (Barolo, Brunello & Barbaresco), Rob has spent most of his life running the family’s restaurants and, eventually, decided to commit himself entirely to the wine business. Always a regular on the wine scene (including late nights at VinItaly and long days at ProWein), Rob has developed a large and diverse network of contacts. Rob has travelled extensively to the wine producing regions of the world but his spiritual home lies somewhere between Alba and Etna.
