Kolonaki Fine Wines & Spirits is a leading importer and distributor of craft wines, beers and spirits from around the globe.

For the last two decades we have been servicing the foodservice and hospitality industries. Our passion for distinct quality beers, wines, and spirits is showcased in our portfolio of over 100 offerings. We respect traditional winemaking and distillation methods and forward thinking, cutting edge products.

We travel the globe to vineyards and producers sourcing the earth's best kept secrets. Our travels helped us source libations from top producers in California, France, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and beyond. 

Our select wines and spirits have a story, a history, and a keen eye on the future. They conjure up feelings of connection to a place and time, the feeling of sipping sparkling rosé in Provence, an assyrtiko on Santorini’s caldera, or a sauvignon blanc in New Zealand.

We continue to service the industry, and our products are also available regionally for home delivery directly from our website.



Steve Kriaris

Steve Kriaris is an entrepreneur, consultant, philanthropist, and the founder and president of KOLONAKI Group of Companies. Born and raised in Toronto to immigrant parents, he grew up with a strong connection to Greece and his European heritage.

Steve's entrepreneurial spirit was evident from a young age. KOLONAKI Group was born after a trip to his parent's homeland in his early twenties when he realized the absence of quality products from the Mediterranean in Canada. He was the first to bring natural Greek mineral water to Canada in 2000. During subsequent business trips back to Europe, it was apparent to him that Canadians were missing out on quality and delectable Mediterranean wines. He quickly expanded his company to include fine wines, beers and spirits.

Steve has spent most of the last two decades growing his company, which now consists of three divisions; Kolonaki Fine Wines, Kolonaki Fine Foods, and Kolonaki Fine Lifestyle. In addition to importing fine products, Steve enjoys creating his own. Ten years ago, he started his own wine label, Thalia, using grapes from Crete. His most recent creation is Da Capo espresso and Three Little Figs spread.

In 2012 he was recognized by The Hellenic Canadian Board of Trade with the Business Achievement Award. Steve is an example of creating a successful business by incorporating one's passions. His company is his lifestyle by masterfully combining his favorite things. Travelling to locate craft wines, beers, spirits, fine foods from the Mediterranean and beyond, and being in touch with Mother Nature through the flavors that reflect the land, sea, and the sun and telling stories of unique producers of the world.
