Since its establishment in 1994 Free House Wine & Spirits has strived to maintain its initial goal on delivering to the hospitality trade – and ultimately to the consumer – the best quality products at the most affordable price. The passion for wine that prompted the founding partners, Ted Latimer and Don Bryant, to progress from retail to wholesale distribution has remained undiminished even as the Calgary-based agency expanded to serve all of Canada. Today the portfolio has grown in size and diversity to include some of the wine world’s most exclusive and interesting producers.

Red, White & Drunk All Over

  Best Books of the Year

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
