WineryToHome.com, Canada's pioneer online wine merchant, only sells wines approved by two of Canada's top wine experts. With almost 500 Ontario wines from over 40 wineries - WineryToHome.com has the largest VQA online wine store in Canada and operates the highly acclaimed WINE of the MONTH CLUB.
Our WINE CLUB ships 2 (or more) different of Ontario's top, newly-released wines each month to CLUB members in most parts of Canada. Many are non-LCBO wines, selected after being approved by Tony Aspler and David Lawrason at our monthly Experts Tasting. CLUB plans start at $45/month, all in (in Ontario, more due to shipping in other provinces) - and some plans (Ontario-only) contain Canadian artisanal cheese selected by one of our cheese experts Debbie Levy or Kathy Guidi. All wines and cheeses come with our experts' reviews and ratings.
Rating System and Reviews
Every wine reviewer sees wines differently and each has his own system for rating them. We think it is more meaningful and helpful for our site visitors and members, to access the impressions of two of Canada’s top independent and respected wine critics - each with his own subjective views about a particular wine. That way, you can take into consideration not only the winery's description of a wine - but also those of two independent reviewers. This will help you more fully visualize the true nature of a wine - and compare it against your own taste profile.
Tony Aspler and
taste all wines proposed for our site, and their descriptions of and ratings for each wine they recommend are then posted on our site on each wine page. Reviews are never altered. Only wines that David and Tony recommend are listed on our website, except for new releases not yet tasted. Our ratings are: G = Good, VG = Very Good, VG+ = Very Good Plus and OS = Outstanding. At the end of the day, we think that this approach is more useful when you’re trying to select a wine that suits your own tastes - than relying upon the opinion of any single reviewer.
Our independent artisanal cheese experts reviews all of the cheeses we offer as part of several CLUB plans – and we only sell those that they she recommends.
