HISTORY

It all started back in 1962 when Dominic DeFalco “Ottawa’s Patron Saint” of home winemaking, began carrying a few brewing and winemaking supplies in a corner of his hardware store. As the hobby gained in popularity, the small section grew into DeFalco's Wine Cellar in the store's basement and in 1977, Dominic phased out hardware entirely, concentrating his efforts solely on home beer and winemaking. Sadly, Dominic passed away in 1984, but his spirit lives on through our mascot, affectionately known as Dominic, in honour of him, our founding father. In 1991, our second store was opened and was further expanded in 1993, along with our original store, to meet the ever increasing demand for home beer and winemaking. In 1997, we entered the “on-premise winemaking” market and over the years have grown to three of the largest outlets of our kind in Canada. Dedication to the customer along with quality products and service are two elements that haven’t changed over the years. That was our policy when we first opened and still is today.
