It's been named  the official wine supplier for Team Canada by the Canadian Olympic Committee.

CEO Charlie Pillitteri tells CKTB it all started with an "ask"  during the PyeongChang Olympics

He says Canada House was looking for wine and Pillitteri had some to send from Korea.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of the winery's Team Canada Collection will be donated to the Canadian Olympic Foundation.

It's a six-year  deal that extends  through the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.
