As an independent on premise winery, we carefully choose the best wines from different Canadian suppliers. Two suppliers are businesses owned by huge commercial wineries that supply the LCBO and operate their own retail stores.
RJ Spagnols, a division of Vincor, is owned by Constellation Brands which is the largest wine business in the world.
Winexpert is owned by Andew Peller Limited.
Both produce wonderful products as commercial wines and for on premise wineries. Both have vineyards in wine regions throughout the world and offer the benefits of shared supply, capital and research.
You can "make" their very best wines on premise for under $8.00 per 750mL bottle. These wine-region specific -- sometimes single vineyard wines -- are fermented on varietal grape skins for all the colour, body and flavour of their commercial wine equivalents.
Ask and you will learn that our customers actually prefer their own wines to commercial produts. Sure, they love the price ... but they also enjoy the look, smell and taste of their wines. They appreciate the fact that their own wines contain less additives than commercial wines. They like refilling their bottles rather than lugging the empties back to The Beer Store for a refund; they know that refilling trumps recycling.
Savings of 50% and more
are yours ...
The AGCO, which licences and regulates the on premise industry, makes it difficult for the on premise winemaking industry to attract new customers -- for instance, we are not allowed to sample our wines ... we cannot show the price per bottle except on the Internet ... we cannot facilitate "group buying" where a few customers might wish to share on premise wine between them.
By law, you must start and bottle your wine (using our modern equipment) to enjoy these savings and to sip, savour and share your very own wine ... from your personal wine cellar.
And, you pay for your purchase at the time of order. That way, we are handling the intermediate wine making steps on your behalf.
Finally, you need a little patience. While our top-end wines are pleasant to drink the day they are bottled, they will become spectacular with some bottle ageing. When you visit the winery, we can advise you which wines may be enjoyed young and which will pay huge dividends after some time. Some new customers make two wines on their first visit -- one to age and one to enjoy immediately -- and that's a practical way to escape the LCBO's high-price world.
