Own Your Own VinBon!

About Vin Bon

The retail concept of selling imported grape juice for home winemaking originated with Vin Bon. Before Vin Bon came on the scene, Canadians wanting to make homemade wine bought grapes, squeezed them to extract the juice, and then strained out the solids - even before starting to make wine. Now, with Vin Bon, home wine creations have become easier and less time-consuming resulting in vastly superior wines by buying only the juice.

As Ontario's largest make-your-own-wine retailer with over 30 years in the industry, it's no wonder Vin Bon is the name you can rely on. Vin Bon not only sells the highest quality wine juice, we sell kits with all the basics you need to make and bottle your very own wine. Vin Bon is the only stop you need to make to create a vintage of the highest calibre that you'd be proud to serve family and friends.

Commitment to Quality

Vin Bon's standards of uncompromising product quality, allows consumers to make wines which are superior in many ways to wines purchased at wine stores and liquor outlets. All at a fraction of the price and backed by our unconditional guarantee. Whether it's wine made at home or wine made at your local Vin Bon, our customers can be assured of consistent, top-quality wine that they can enjoy with family and friends.

As the first to pioneer the home winemaking concept in Canada, Vin Bon was the first to take the toil and trouble out of making your own wine. Now it's as simple as choosing your grape juice and deciding whether to nurture your vintage at home or at any one of our convenient locations.

At Vin Bon we realize some of life's finest moments are shared in the company of loved ones over a glass of wine. To be part of moments such as these is nothing short of an honour and a privilege. From everyone here at Vin Bon, we thank you for allowing us to be a part of these times and we raise a toast to the future. Cheers.

Our Community

As a family owned and operated business we understand the importance of family and by extension, community. Which is why Vin Bon is proud to support a variety of community programs across the GTA and York Region, from the Annual Vaughan Under 16 soccer tournament to innumerable hockey teams to the Italian Social Club.

Philip Locilento

Born and raised in Toronto, Philip Locilento didn’t think that he’d necessarily end up in the family business even though he grew up in a family of wine lovers. However, after working for a few years he inevitably caught the wine bug and so began his passion for wine and winemaking. Having worked under some of Canada’s greatest winemakers, Philip applies what he has learned to the family business where he works alongside his parents and his younger brother. Now involved in the production of wine, as well as the importing of grapes and fresh grape juices, Philip works diligently with some of the world’s finest grape growers to bring only the finest grapes and grape juices to Canada. Philip is fluent in both English and Italian and has completed the Wine and Spirit course of Ontario. He is an avid outdoors man and enjoys running, snowmobiling, skiing, and spending time with his wife, and three beautiful children. \

Marco Locilento

Having grown up in the Locilento wine making family, Marco is no stranger to passion for the craft. And now after having learned the trade passed down from generation to generation and tended to the process after honing his skills from the vineyards of Niagara to the barrel aging of great vintages from Cilento Wines, he is pleased and proud to carry on the Locilento family tradition.

Adrian Carabajal

Born and raised in Mendoza, Argentina, Adrian started his wine career in the amazing Lunlunta Valley in Maipú, at Cavas de Don Arturo Winery as a winemaker assistant. While studying at Facultad de Enologia, Universidad Catolica de Cuyo, he gathered his experience from the professional staff of this very well known group of wineries. From there he made wines for the boutique winery Finca El Zorzal. In 2005 he visited Ontario where he fell in love with the Cool Climate Oenology. Then after two years of traveling the globe he decided to plant his own roots and his family moved to Canada. They now share Grace and Angelo Locilento’s life dream to produce Wines of Distinction.
