A Drinks Company

Who We Are

In 1991, Leo Baduria joined the wine industry as a sales associate for two wine companies until he created Groupe Soleil with a partner in 1997, Amphorae in 1999, and, finally, his very own company, Portfolio Wine & Spirits in 2001, where he developed the market for specialty wines from independent family growers in France, Italy, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.  His passion for wine, along with his knowledge and expertise, led to the creation of Vinologie with Anne in response to the changing drinks market in Canada.

Anne was born in Paris, France and has lived, studied and worked in several countries before and after immigrating to Canada. Following an international career in Investment Banking and Microfinance, Anne embraced a second career in the wine industry.

As a Certified Sommelier (ISG) and holder of the prestigious WSET Diploma, past President of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) Ontario, Anne is also a noted International wine judge and has previously worked with SOPEXA and consulted for Wine Australia. In 2019, together with Leo,  Vinologie was created.
