Vice Chair of the Niagara College Board of Governors
Del Rollo, the Senior Director of Government Relations and Estates for Constellation Brands Canada Inc., discovered his passion for food and wine while attending Ryerson University for the Hospitality and Tourism Program.
Having held several service and management positions at various dining establishments throughout the Greater Toronto Area, and a nine-year tenure with the Four Seasons Hotel located in the heart of the trendy Yorkville district, Del worked his way up the ranks from server to certified wine sommelier, to assistant manager at the renowned Truffles, Toronto’s only five-diamond restaurant, Manager of La Serre and finally Conference Services Manager.
In August 2000, Del was invited by Donald Triggs and Dr. Allan Jackson, the founders of Jackson-Triggs, to join them in launching a state-of-the-art winery and hospitality centre in Niagara-on-the-Lake. With the U.S. based Constellation Brands Inc. acquisition of Vincor Canada in 2006, Rollo’s position was elevated to Director of Hospitality for all of the Estates across Canada. In 2012 Del took on his current role leading the public affairs work for Constellation in Ontario.
Del, who is actively involved with several community and tourism organizations, and his wife Lisa have three sons and reside in St. Catharines.
