Tina Jones is a highly successful Manitoba entrepreneur, an active community contributor and philanthropist, and well-known Winnipeger. She is the owner of Banville & Jones Wine Company, the largest private wine store and destination wine and drinks school in Manitoba; she is a partner in the highly successful Green Carrot Juice Company; a partner in The Rink, a Manitoba facility that provides innovative programming for budding hockey players; and a partner in the RHA Nationals, an integrated program that brings together an unparalleled hockey program with fine schooling.

Ms Jones has inherited a strong entrepreneurial spirit from her father Pierluigi Tolaini, who immigrated from Italy and built (from a single truck) the largest privately held transport company in Canada. Pierluigi has fulfilled a lifelong dream to create great Italian wine, and Tina is proud to be working with him to build the Tolaini wine brand. Tina has grown up with an understanding that success is built upon vision, hard work, building great teams and continually reaching for excellence.
