Wine has been enjoyed for centuries. While it is still fermented grape juice, every so often there is a new innovation, a blend, a hot variety, or something else new in the wine world. Recently, buying wine online has become increasingly popular among wine lovers in Ontario.
There are many Ontario wine agents who make it their mission to source the world’s best wines from unique and hidden gem wineries. The Small Winemakers Collection has been doing this since 1991, and brings these exclusive wines directly to your door in Ontario.
Here are a collection of benefits you can stand to gain from ordering your wine online.
1. It saves the trip
According to the Canada Post, 76% of Canadians shopped online last year. The simple truth is driving, fighting for a parking spot, heading to the store just to find out the store doesn’t have what you want in stock is becoming more unacceptable. In recent years, the click of a mouse has saved shoppers from countless quarrels over finding the last parking spot.
The best way to get your wine is to save the trip and have it delivered right to your front door.
2. Easier to search
Shopping for your favourite wine is much easier when done online. Browsing through multiple offerings from the world’s best wineries can be done in a mere matter of minutes. Looking for a favourite wine or wine region? Searching on the Small Winemakers Collection website can narrow your search in seconds. You can also do your shopping in the comfort of your own home – not much can beat that.
3. Access to more wine
For many Ontario wine enthusiasts, their favourite wines are yet to be discovered or may exist in another county. The LCBO only carries a certain number of wines from some of the world’s largest wineries. However, the smaller wineries are not as well represented.
By ordering through your Ontario wine agent, you have access to far more wines that you would not be able to find at the LCBO. Treat yourself and your guests to an exclusive bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch, South Africa, or a 2015 Raimat Albarino from Penedes, Spain.
Check out some of these offerings from the Small Winemakers Collection.
