We're Your 'On-the-Ground' Team in Ontario

Terra Firma Brands employs 7 people, 4 of whom are sales people who focus on store visits and staff tastings and training. Our staff cover all of Southern Ontario, where 80% of the population live.

Prior to joining Terra Firma Brands, General Manager Fiona Burke,worked at Vincor and then Constellation for 5 years in Ontario Sales and Retail.

Marketing Director, Marnie Williamson, has spent the last  5 ½  years with the Independent Wine Education Guild (IWEG - the Ontario WSET Approved Program Provider) as Program Development Manager. During that time student enrolment more than doubled and course curriculum grew over 400%, as she grew the WSET business and implemented new programming including Ontario content and the highly successful seminar Signature Series.

  • In late 2006, I met Nick Hirons at a trade tasting in Toronto. Following this first meeting, we obtained our first order soon after. I knew I could count on Nick and his team to help us grow this market. By 2010, we had sold over 7000 cases of various wines in Ontario, ranging in price from $15 to $100. I know I can contact Terra Firma any time for help in my commercial approaches. Terra Firma is a reliable, serious and efficient partner where people are real professionals, where after sales services exists and this, to any supplier who is interested in the hyper-competitive Ontario market, is priceless.
