Wine Shop Special 6-Pack

For a limited time, we will have 6-pack boxes split between a red and a white. These are available in the wine shop only (not available for shipping). Some of these wines have damaged labels. They are ideal for home consumption rather than gift giving and would both work well for "cut-above" mulled wine, too.

Price: $99.60 per 6-pack, all taxes and bottle deposit included.



Balsamic Vinegar

The 1990 Legacy is Back
 
The 2017 release of our estate-grown 1990 Legacy "extra vecchio" ancient method balsamic vinegar is now bottled and available. Use our online order form or email us now to reserve a bottle for pick-up before Christmas. 
 
This extraordinary vinegar is the result of our family's passion, patience and commitment to natural viticulture. A tiny amount was drawn from each of the head barrels (started 1990) in our solera series composed of small artisan-made casks of cherry, chestnut, acacia, ash and oak. 
 
Production: 99 numbered bottles. Price: $100 per 100 ml bottle with brochure a cedar box hand-made by Giordano - style varies depending on his mood.

$65 per 250 ml bottle (but with special pricing for our loyal customers like you) with its brochure in a recycled and recyclable kraft cardboard box.

If you are also ordering 12 bottles or more of wine, use the coupon code friends for an immediate reward of 10% of wine purchases as well as the preferential pricing on the vinegar.


Our Hand-Painted Bottles
 

  
 

The same classic balsamic vinegar in bottles that have been hand-painted and fired by local artist Terry Harrison. This gorgeous Wildflower Series is perfect for special gifts. Very limited in supply, so no volume discounts are available. $71 per 250 ml bottle
 
Our Maple Balsamic
 
Our Maple Balsamic is made with our own juice and some very special single-estate Quebec organic maple syrup, then aged in small chestnut barrels for 10 years. Order by November 21 and get a complimentary gift box hand-made by Giordano (style varies). Excellent on cheese, salmon, asparagus, cheesecake and ice cream. Let your imagination run wild! Price per 100 ml bottle with brochure is $59.90.

Jams

Check out the available jams and jellies. They change seasonally and Michelle is always experimenting with new combinations. Try the new Siegerrebe Hot Pepper Jelly and the Pinot Noir Rosemary/Black Pepper Jelly. A selection is always available for tasting in the wine shop. 
 
These special treats, made in tiny batches, are all in 125 ml jars and all of Michelle's profits go into her son's Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). Price: $9.95 per 125 ml jar 
 
All of the jams and most of the jellies contain a little of our balsamic vinegar, not as a flavouring, but just enough to lift the fruit to new heights! Wonderful with cheese and crackers or baguette slices, in sauces, with poultry and other meats, or just out of the jar!

Apricot Basil Balsamic Jam 
Blackberry Jalapegño Balsamic Jam 
Blueberry Sage Balsamic Jam

Gift wrapping

We are happy to ship products as gifts direct to your friends and family. Gift wrapping is available for $5 per package. Make sure you let us know what you would like on the card as well as what the occasion is so we can choose paper and gift card accordingly. 
Want them gift wrapped for pick-up? Give us a couple of days' notice.
 


Holiday Shipping and Deadlines

Check out the Canada Post website for shipping deadlines by the various methods. The most economical trackable method to Canada and the US states is  Expedited Parcel. Ship by December 11 to Canadian addresses and by December 12 to mainland US addresses.
 
Note that we cannot ship wine to the US, but shipping products not containing alcohol (balsamic vinegar and jams) is not a problem.
Available shipping options are quoted during the ordering checkout and you will not be asked for payment until you have reviewed all charges and submit the final order. We use the PayPal portal. If you have a PayPal account associated with your email address, PayPal uses that account.
 
If you do not have a PayPal account, you may get one or pay using any credit card. If you prefer not to use the PayPal platform, choose "manual payment" and we will contact you for credit card information. PayPal accepts all credit cards. We accept Visa and MasterCard. Our wine shop also accepts debit and Discover cards with the card present. 
 
We can also courier to you on your account, or by Loomis to business addresses. Shipping to homes and home-based businesses is at your own risk and incur a courier surcharge. An adult must be home to receive wine and show proof of age 19+. Contact us for a quote to homes. 


US Customers

Today, the US dollar is worth about CAD$1.28. Check with your issuing bank, as rates vary day to day and credit cards have an additional "service fee", usually 2.5%. Still a good deal for our US friends! 
Our vinegars, jams and books can be shipped to the US. Expedited Parcel Post USA is an excellent option and usually takes 4 to 8 days for the contiguous United States and Hawaii. Xpresspost USA is much more expensive, so best to order in the next two or three weeks to avoid the high volume bottlenecks.
 
If you are on the Island, please drop by. We'd love to see you.
With our best wishes and warmest regards for the holiday season,
 
Giordano, Marilyn and Michelle
