A wine promotional agency established in Quebec in 1997, Le Maître de Chai represents more than 200 wineries, serving both the Quebec and Ontario markets since 2015.


Over the past two decades, we have put together an enviable portfolio of world-class wineries and winemakers who are considered the elite in their respective regions.


To our clients, be it individual wine lovers or restaurants, we are proud to offer truly exceptional wines. To the wineries we represent, we take equal pride in our ability to communicate their stories. Wether these wine are sold on private ordering, directly through the LCBO stores, or both, we will find the ideal route to bring these wines to market.


To excel in this business, one must have, before anything else, a passion for not only wine, but also the people who are behind every bottle. It’s these enduring personal relationships we cultivate with our winemakers, restaurateurs and individual clients that is the ultimate reward.– Francis Martin, owner of Le Maitre de Chai


Our story began at the end of the 1980’s, when Gilles Martin and Josée Levert, founders of Le Maitre de Chai, travelled all over France searching for wines to stock their personal cellar. Along the way, they discovered not only great wines, but met truly memorable winemakers. Wether or not they realized it at the time, they were laying the foundation of not only a wine agency, but a philosophy of how to run a wine agency. We operate on the same principle today- that wine is ultimately about people.


Among the pioneers of selling wines on private import in Quebec, Gilles and Josée carefully expanded their portfolio by knocking on the doors of the world’s most respected wineries, adding one new client at a time. This passion for wine and desire to represent only the best was passed on their son Francis, who has been running Le Maitre de Chai since 2010.
Le Maitre de Chai is one of the most respected wine agencies in Quebec, and now we have set up shop in Ontario. But as we have grown over the years, we have never wavered from our founding principle : to seek out authentic and exceptional wines at all price levels and to transmit the passion and stories of those who make them.


Alphonse Mellot

Loire, France

The Pouilly-Fumé is a negoce bottling with Mellot-endorsed grapes from Pouilly-Fumé vinified in the domain’s cellar in Sancerre. The Coteaux Charitois, just to the south of Pouilly-Fumé, is a historical wine-growing region that fell into obscurity over the last century. Its renown is once again on the rise, thanks to the Mellots, who make two cuvees en fermage, as well as a pinot noir and a Chardonnay Les Pénitents

Château de Villeneuve

Loire, France

The appellation of Saumur-Champigny could not have found a better person to preside over its producers union than Jean-Pierre Chevallier.
To the prerequisites of diplomacy and a sense of what’s best for everyone, Jean-Pierre also adds a touch of perfectionism. As a result of his presidency, the appelation’s wines have been able to ascend in quality levels. As early as twenty years ago, the Château de Villeneuve made a concerted effort to produce not just ho-hum wines, but superior wines reflecting their place. These wines can be classified among Saumur-Champigny’s trio of elites.


Ktima Biblia Chora

Pangeon, Greece

On the barren slopes of Mt. Pangeon, at Kokkinochori near Kavala in Northern Greece, the oenologists Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou have joined forces and combined their experience in wine production to set up a model vineyard covering 15 hectares. The long viticultural tradition of the area has its roots in ancient times. Theoktitus and Michael Psellos referred to the region as Biblia Chora, hence the name of the estate. The contours of Mt. Pangeon, the cool breezes from the Strymonic Gulf and the flinty soil of the region all provide ideal conditions for cultivation of the vine.


Domaine Katsaros

Kranea, Greece

Domaine Katsaros is a small family enterprise established in 1985 in the traditional vine country of Krania, Mount Olympus, in Northern Greece. The twenty-acre privately owned vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay crops, with a small, state of the art winery situated on the eastern slopes of lower Mount Olympus at an altitude of 750 meters, just outside the village of Krania.
