A keen interest from restaurateurs and the SAQ, all seeking distinct and original products, contributed to Univins’ rapid growth. In 2006, the company became the second largest specialty products agency in Quebec. In 2007, the Vini-Quatro group was created, comprising Univins, Francs-Vins, Tandem Selections (Ontario), Tandem Atlantic (Atlantics provinces) and Tandem Wine Selection (Alberta). Vini-Quatro became a wine agent, importer, distributor and negotiator operating throughout the entire country.
This Canada-wide success led to the consolidation of all the partners in 2015 and to the creation of Univins and Spirits.
In 2020, Univins and Spirits is now be part of the Dandurand Group, the largest Canadian family-run alcoholic beverages importer agency in the country.
Following this acquisition, Daniel Richard will remain the president of Univins and Spirits. Univins and Spirits carries on its activities as an independent entity.
