Salvation Wines strives to bring great wine at a great price. We work with family run wineries from Southern France's and bring their very special wines to Ontario. These delicious, limited production wines produced by artisan vintners can now be found on LCBO’s online store.
My name is Brian Jutzi and I am the founder of Salvation Wines. Inspired by Peter Mayle’s book “A year in Provence”, my wife Cindy and I travelled to France where we discovered many small family run wineries. It was a trip that would change our lives and planted our love for good wine.
For the Love of Wine
We hope to grow and connect with more wineries across Southern France
I want to do this for the love of good wine, share this unique experience with others here in Canada, and bring what we fell in love in France here for others to enjoy.

Our producers tend to have much in common. All of them are passionate about and absolutely committed to their craft. Their vines are thirty, forty, fifty years and older. They have invested heavily in new equipment and technology. They prefer to use organic fertilizers and natural disease and pest control techniques, eschewing chemicals whenever possible.
Their winemakers are veritable magicians who coax the maximum from the grapes that for the most part are grown on the wineries’ properties. They make wines that respect the character of their land, climates and conditions (terroir). They are small to medium-sized family run operations that look for long-term, personal relationships with their distributors and ultimate clients.
