The purpose of the wine club is to provide our Members with the opportunity to purchase very special wines that cannot be found at the LCBO delicious, rare wines that provide maximum value and drinking pleasure.
We decided to form the wine club because we love sharing fine wines with good friends and family and have always wanted to be involved in the wine trade. To us, wine grapes are very intelligent. They only grow where the weather is fair, the scenery is breathtaking and the people are charming, sincere and hospitable. Our intent is to visit those wine grapes as often as we can in order to search out and bring back unique and delightful wines for our Members.
We send our vineyard discoveries, recommended wines and invitations to special wine tasting events to you in ‘Selections’, the Arthur’s Cellar newsletter. All our past issues are listed under “Newsletter” at the bottom of the left sidebar.
Over the past two decades we have traveled and tasted extensively in southern France. I can’t count the number of times we said, “Isn’t it too bad we can’t get this wine back home”. Now we can, and we invite you to join us!
How it Works
There are no initiation fees, membership dues or other obligations associated with club membership. To become a Member, simply click on Join.
We will tell you about new wines and wineries in our newsletter, ‘Selections’ and a complete listing of all available wines will be posted on our website.
Ordering is simple. Just click “Order” on the left sidebar on our homepage or click here [Order] and follow the instructions. The LCBO requires that wine be ordered by the full case, usually either six or twelve bottles. If a case is too much of a good thing, we suggest you share the order with a friend or two or take advantage of our Share a Case feature. We also offer sampler cases of a vintner’s products whenever practical (the LCBO requires that each wine in a case have the same alcohol content).
When you “check out” you will be able to pay with your favourite credit or debit card via PayPal. If you prefer, just let me know what you want and then send us a cheque (Arthur Sellers & Company) to 286 Spring Garden Road in Oakville.
We will show you the Order Date with each wine … this is the day we will stop taking orders and will take the combined list of wines our Members want to the LCBO for processing.
Please note that there will be a $1.00 per bottle “Handling Fee” to cover our administrative expenses.
Within two to three months we will let you know that your wine is ready for delivery (it has to come from France and be cleared by the LCBO). You can follow the progress of your order by clicking on “Delivery Status”. We will personally deliver directly to those living in Toronto through to Burlington. Members residing outside this area will pick up their orders at the LCBO store they specified when they originally joined the club. We will provide you with an electronic ‘Order Confirmation”. Just bring it and some photo ID to your local LCBO store to collect your wine.
Then you can enjoy your wine, tell all your friends and order more!
