Vincenzo Geloso arrived in Montreal from Italy in 1957
with his wife and children. He soon founded his first
business, importing wine grapes from California. In 1965,
Vins Geloso Inc. was granted the very first wine
manufacturer permit (#001) ever issued by the then
Quebec Liquor Corporation.
Since inception, the Geloso story is a tale of passion
and product expansion. The company has thrived by
investing in Research & Development and the
manufacturing of alcoholic and low-alcohol beverages,
wines, as well as in the brokerage and distribution of
food and non-food products. After first establishing
its main plant in Quebec in 1961, Geloso Group has
expanded its activities to other Canadian provinces
and the United States.
