It is important to understand how wines are sold in Ontario. When purchasing wine from this site, you are not buying the wines from RealFoodToronto.com, but instead you are purchasing directly from the LCBO. RealFoodToronto.com is not selling this wine to you, but merely providing you the information about the wine.
We are proud to list wines from Le Sommelier Inc., one of Ontario's premier wine agents as well as Southbrook Vineyards, a Niagara winery leading the pack for quality Organic and Biodynamic wines in Canada . A wine agent act as facilitators in the purchase and delivery of wine from the LCBO to you. So, when you purchase your wine using the RealFoodToronto.com website, the appropriate wine agent will be contacting you about delivery and will be issuing its own invoice to you.
About Consignment wines:
Only a fraction of wines available to Ontario residents are available to you in LCBO retail outlets. Wine agents, like Le Sommelier and The Living Vine, scour the world for the best wines and sell them to restaurants and consumers alike on behalf of the LCBO; that is why they are referred to as "consignment wines". Have you ever wondered why you can't find many, if not most wines you see in restaurants in LCBO stores? That's because restaurants do a lot of their purchasing through wine agents, who have a strong expertise and passion for their product and a personalized knowledge of the wine, the winery it came from, and the winemaker who made it.
The only disadvantage to buying consignment wines is that you have to buy by the case.
For most wine drinkers, that's not a big deal, especially considering that the wines offered are top notch wines.
After you have placed your order for these wines through RealFoodToronto.com, the applicable wine agent or winery will be delivering directly to you.
We hope you enjoy this wonderful selection of wines, conveniently delivered to your door.
