Our bottle shop is closed until January 13 or open by appointment only.
We try to keep the product list up to date but if you're curious about a specific product, please contact us and we can confirm its availability.
A little more about the bottle shop...
We work with several importers to bring in products that are not available at the LCBO. We favor small producers and wines that speak of a place. We love introducing people to a native grape they’ve never heard of or a wine from a region they’ve never tried. Our interests lie in organic, biodynamic, and low-intervention. These are wines made with minimal processing in the cellar, minimal to no additives, and grapes farmed without chemicals. These are the wines we personally love to drink and are the foundation of our offerings. If you care about the food you eat, how it’s grown, and where it comes from, then these wines are for you.
We also have a pretty great collection of beer and cider from Ontario craft breweries and cideries and are actively expanding these offerings.
Our retail prices range between 25% to 45% off our regular dine in prices with the majority falling between 35-40% off.
We are not the LCBO, so your shopping experience will be different, in a good way! However, here are a few things we thought you should know.
1. All takeout orders must be accompanied by food as per AGCO requirements. We have several small snacks to satisfy this requirement, including Lays chips for $1.
2. HST is not included.
3. All sales are final.
Some additional fine print
Low-intervention or ‘natural’ wines do not have a formal definition, but they are typically made from organic grapes with minimal processing in the cellar and small amounts of sulfur (preservative) if any at all. Nothing added, and nothing taken away. Because of this, they may contain sediment, tartaric acid crystals and have unfamiliar flavor profiles. What may be considered a flaw in a conventional wine is often acceptable in natural wine, to some degree. This is why all sales are final. If you end up with a corked bottle (contaminated with TCA, which results in a musty, wet cardboard smell), please return the unfinished bottle with a receipt within 15 days, and we can offer you something in exchange.
Natural wines can be electric, eclectic, and delicious, and we highly recommend you give one a try. If you want to play it safe, we can help you do that too!
Although the majority of our wines are not available at the LCBO, some are. When we do bring in something from the LCBO, they are limited in availability or hard to find. If you want to be sure you are purchasing a non-LCBO product, please ask.
Likewise, most of our wines would be considered low-intervention, organic, bio-dynamic, and/or vegan. Some are not. We are working on making this information readily available to our shoppers. In the meantime, please ask.
