Hey WCR-ers – Do you guys know of any wine clubs or wine club offers that don’t charge outrageous shipping and/or duty to Canada?
Like shipping to different states, shipping to different countries have rules & regulations that must be followed. First, I wanted to check the current clubs which we recommend, to see if they ship to different countries.Cellars Wine Club has a State / Province dropdown, but only US states are listed. Also, there’s a line for Country, but “US” is the only choice.
Gold Medal Wine Club allows for shipments to be sent to the US or the UK.
Wine CollectiveWine Collective is a Canadian-base wine club, who uses distributors to process orders. Pricing varies based on your shipping zone, but they offer multiple clubs and average about $100 per shipment of 2-4 bottles.
AmazingClubs.caAmazingClubs.ca has a wine club that ship to Ontario, Canada. You can choose to receive monthly or every-other month shipments for 3, 6, or 12 months or a Wine-of-the-Season Club which is a quarterly delivery.
MonthlyClubs.caMonthlyClubs.ca is just $41.95 – $59.95 / month for 1 or 2 bottles of wine, but again only shipping to the province of Ontario.
Hemispheres Wine GuildHemispheres Wine Guild memberships delivers wine by the case. With their Taster Trial membership, you get 1 case for 3 monthly payments of $110 ($330 total payment). As a Taster Member, choose between red wines, whites, or a mixed case with four deliveries per year for $110 per month ($1320 total payment). Hemispheres Wine Guild ships to all provinces, but at $27.50 per bottle, it’s a pricey option. If you’re getting frustrated trying to find a wine club that can ship to you, we feel your pain. Even here in the States there are limitations. If you’re in Ontario, you have a few affordable options for wine ship memberships. Otherwise, check with your local winery or retail wine shop to see if they have a club.
