our story

We are wine passionate people who build distinguished brands.

Pierre L. Doise, a young entrepreneur, immigrated to Vancouver B.C. in 1980. At
that time consumers were showing a broader appreciation for wine.

Influenced by his fathers history of being a wine shipper in London (UK), prior to WWII, Pierre founded Select Wine Merchants in 1982
focusing his efforts on fine dining restaurants and Cru Classé wines.

Within 20 years Pierre’s idea had evolved into a 1 million case wine company
across Canada, boasting relationships with many of the world’s most esteemed

In 2017 Pierre completed his succession plan for Select Wines. As the next
generation of the company, Chris Hoffmeister, CEO, and his senior leadership
team are continuing Pierre’s legacy: building a company that is focused on
growth and results, while strengthening customer relationships, and fostering a
work environment where trust, respect and integrity are the dominant values.

Today, Select Wines has offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. Our market leading performance is driven by the passion of our 100+ employees,  a proven methodology and best in class systems that create value for our partners.

We curate a portfolio of fine wines and category leading products. With a tailored commercial approach focussing on hospitality, direct to consumer and retail.
