Context Wines Inc

  (416) 885-7022

A native of Toronto, Mark began his career as a student of history, completing both Bachelors and Masters degrees in that field. But, while enjoying a year abroad in Germany, Mark discovered the wines of the Mosel Valley and was struck by their beauty and reflection of place. Upon returning to Toronto Mark resolved to enter the wine business. And after working for several years with a boutique agent, he decided to take his passion for wines and create a unique portfolio that drew on his love of the story behind each wine and the way it intimately reflected the context of its origin. Launching Context Wines Inc in 2016, Mark seeks out wines he loves, focusing on Italy and France, but with an eye towards other great wine regions of the world. Mark believes that a wine portfolio is indicative of the person or people who created it and, like them, a constant work in progress.

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
