For those of us trying to endure the monotony of quarantine, wine has become a welcome evening accompaniment as soon as the Out of Office hours begin. From finding the perfect pairing to go with dinner to exploring bottles both local and international, wine—and all of the nuances that come with it—has become a new way to explore the world all while staying at home.

With over 350+ labels on offer, co-founder of WineOnline.ca Jonny Bick and his sommelier team are impressing serious collectors and social wine drinkers alike by hunting down and delivering vino you can’t find elsewhere.

Whether you’re looking for a gorgeous Spanish Rioja, a rich and aromatic Cab out of California, or a highly allocated Burgundy, the selection of WineOnline.ca is unmatched. With plenty of 90+ point winners, organic and biodynamic vintages, and small-batch cases from boutique vineyards, WineOnline.ca offers so much more than what you might find in the aisles of your local LCBO. Plus, the vast and skillfully curated selection makes it easy to find a bottle you’ll love.

“We love helping people find a new favourite or nab a vintage they wouldn’t normally have a chance to experience,” says Bick. “There’s so much amazing wine out there to be discovered, you just have to be willing to take the leap from the norm.”

Along with a knowledgeable team that can chat with customers to guide them toward a great pick, WineOnline.ca’s service includes free doorstep delivery and a satisfaction guarantee: if you don’t love your purchase, they’ll set you up with something else.

Due to regulations, WineOnline.ca has to sell by the case, but Bick sees the bright side of that. Besides the fact that it cuts down on deliveries and having to go out shopping (an obvious concern these days), it allows for greater exploration of the wine and a ready inventory should you need something exceptional on standby for a client or friend.
