About Stile Brands

Directed by Carmen David D’Onofrio Jr., Stile is a unique company in terms of size and sales volume. In every year up to the recent recession, our sales continually increased, in some years as much as 40%. Post recession, we have managed to continue positive growth, even while the market as a whole was adjusting. This performance is a testament to our hard work and to the quality of the products we represent.
Established in 1991, our company has grown into one of western Canada’s top agencies, with a solid reputation among our clientele. Our founding directive, which has been an integral part of our business philosophy, is to provide excellent quality products that offer great value. Our portfolio exemplifies this with excellent quality to prove quality to price is outstanding.
The company continues to develop its market share through new brand acquisitions and joint ventures. Stile has expanded beyond Italian wines into the wines from prestigious vineyards in France, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, California, Washington, Oregon, Portugal, Germany, Spain, Australia and British Columbia. In addition to wines, Stile’s unique selection of quality products includes a great variety of spirits including rum, gin, vodka, grappa, and specialty liqueurs. We also successfully maintain a premium import beer portfolio with brands that include Warsteiner (Germany) and Birra Menabrea (Italy).
Stile takes a disciplined, methodical approach to building enduring premium brands and lasting relationships with our suppliers. With the globalization of the wine business, Stile’s focus extends beyond geographic origin to an individual brand’s consistent quality and potential for growth. The company’s long established marketing expertise has maintained our success, with many of our brands repeatedly garnering top spots in their segments.
