About us

Brix + Mortar Wine Co was founded in 2016 by Ben Hodson, who has been importing and distributing wine in Ontario for the past 15 years.  Our goal is to find iconic and dynamic wines from around the world and bring them to you.  

Our portfolio is comprised of family-owned wineries, many of which are multi-generational and are highly involved in organic, sustainable and biodynamic farming methods.

Ben Hodson, Owner and Founder:

Ben has been working directly in the wine industry since 2002, but his passion for wine started when he lived and worked in Vancouver in 1993.  Working in a small lounge attached to a Gastown nightclub, Ben found an interest in the wines of British Columbia, the Pacific Northwest and California.  After moving to Toronto in 2001, Ben managed restaurants and worked as a sommelier until 2004, when he decided to leave the restaurant industry and focus solely on wine.  He is a certified sommelier, and has a lifelong interest in learning all facets of wine.  He is a major supporter of large format bottles, and holds what is starting to become a pretty great wine cellar.
