More and more wine agencies are entering the Ontario distribution of fine products.

Some travel far and wide in an attempt to discover small growers and winemakers in famous wine regions, others select products while attending tastings organizes by associations of wineries from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rhone Valley, Loire Valley, Piedmont, Tuscany, Germany, Portugal, California, Chile, Spain, Greece, and Ontario.

Interestingly so far, Okanagan Valley wineries in British Columbia have never organized tasting in Ontario although Toronto, Ottawa, and London based wine enthusiasts would certainly reward such an effort.

CGU Fine Wine is a new entrant into the Ontario wine agency industry. There are now 900 wine agencies in Ontario, and while some represent only consignment wines, and others specialize in “special imports”.

Large agencies represent wineries on L C B O’s general list, Vintages, and Classics Catalogue.

Consignment wines are stored in L C B O ‘s warehouses, and can be delivered within a few days, while “special imports” may take up to six to eight weeks, pending their origin.

Consignment and special order wines must be ordered in case lots (six or 12 bottles) and paid in advance.

Some agencies charge a small amount for delivery others wave such extras within G T A.
CGU Fine Wine delivers free of charge, but prices indicated below don’t include HST ( 13 per cent).
This a agency specializes in Champagne, Germany, Burgundy, and Alsace.
