Leo J. Baduria
The man behind Vinologie
In 1991, Leo Baduria joined the wine industry as a sales associate for a respected wine agency 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. He introduced into the market wines that have not been seen before, such as Gruner Veltliner, Primitivo, Negroamaro, among others. He continues to expand his commitment to bringing in unique wines from dedicated producers around the globe.
His passion for wine, along with his knowledge and expertise, led to the creation of Vinologie in response to the changing drinks market in Canada.
