Wine Classics International Inc was established in May of 1995. 

At 23 years old, a young man named Jonathan Hemi was determined to start a new business adventure by becoming a local wine agent, initially selling product out of the back of his green Toyota Camry. These products included Pillitteri and Konzelmann local Niagara wines.

His hard work and perseverance led to signing an exclusivity contract for Forty Creek Whisky, with master distiller John Hall for Canada and the US, in the year 2004.

Since then, Jonathan has managed to become a partner of Globefill Inc., brand owners of Crystal Head Vodka, while increasing distribution in Canada with current suppliers Campari, Edrington, Heaven Hill and Russian Standard (Duty Free agency brands). Domestically, Jonathan successfully represents Magnotta wines (Bill Harvey Duty Free agent), Zaya Rum and tequilas such as Azunia and Corralejo.
