Frequently Asked Questions
Is the price all inclusive?
If you are in Ontario the monthly $54 (two bottle) or $86 (four bottle) are ALL inclusive of taxes and shipping. If you are outside of Ontario there is a nominal shipping charge added to cover extra shipping costs. For outside of Ontario, these extra charges are listed.
What is the term and are there any upfront costs?
There is no set term and you may delay, pause or cancel your membership at any time. You are never committed to any length of time. Plus, there are never any upfront costs. You only pay as you go – shipment by shipment.
Who chooses the wines for my shipment?
The wines are chosen by our winemaker with our director of customer experience. We uphold our promise to send you the best and most exclusive wines we have to offer which include many wines that are created just for the wine club. We always do our best to ensure that all wines sent to you are not LCBO general list offerings.
Can you remind me which package I signed up for?
No problem, simply sign in with your email address and password and click on ‘Account’. Under your Subscriptions it will show your membership type.
What is “Connections Light” and can you move to “Connections”?
“Connections Light Wine Club” has almost all the benefits of the “Connections Wine Club” but the wines are different and the shipments are less frequent with Connections Light (hence the “Light”). The (every-two-months) Connections Light Wine Club is considered the entry port for the (monthly) Connections Wine Club. It is easy to switch into Connections IF a spot is offered and easy to switch back to Connections Light if you wish.
Can I switch membership types in Connections?
You are able to switch between membership types (within “Connections” but not “Connections Light” as it only has one type) but please note that availability is limited. Once you are a “Connections” member, you may switch membership types.
When will the next package be shipped?
We ship Connections Wine Club packages monthly within the first two weeks of each month. The Connections Light packages are shipped six times per year and in the middle of each month. We try very hard to get your wine shipment to you long before the end of the month. Connections Light Wine Club is shipped in January, March, May, July, September and November.
Can I customize my shipments?
There is no customization available in Connections Light Wine Club. For the Connections Wine Club we do allow for some customization. White wines only, red wines only and dry wines only. We always strongly recommend taking the program offered as it will open up your wine tasting experience and allow you to discover “new loves”. It’s a great way to take a chance and see what is really out there.
What if there is a wine shipped that I do not want?
We always give you the option of exchanging any unopened (package not damaged in any way) and properly stored wines during your next visit to the winery for a wine of equal value.
I will be away during my next shipment, what can I do?
If you will be away during the time of shipping, you can re-route your shipment to an address that will be able to receive it on your behalf or have us hold your package until the next month. You may also pause your shipment for the month. PLEASE NOTE: THIS MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH PRIOR TO THE DESIRED CHANGED.
Can I change the address my wine is shipped to?
If you have moved or would like to permanently change your shipping address you can do this by logging in to your account and editing shipping address.
Can I add more wine to my package?
While it will ship separate from your wine club package, you are welcome to order additional wine outside of your wine club shipments. Just log in to your account to order from vinelandwineshop.com or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
What additional wines are available to me?
As a Wine Club member you have access to more wines than anyone else. View the offerings online at vinelandwineshop.com (Wine Club Only wines are clearly noted and only available to members) or email email@example.com for assistance.
When will my credit card be charged?
Credit cards will be processed around the 20th of the month prior to the shipment.
What are the other benefits of membership?
There is a growing list of added benefits but the most popular ones are (1) classic wine pairings for free (for up to two people) when the Chef’s Creative Menu (lunch or dinner) is ordered in our restaurant; (2) exclusive Wine Club parties and events (many complimentary) PLUS there is always preference given to and special prices extended for ALL property events; (3) complimentary and discounted wine flights and experiences.

Due to the cold winter months we do not ship out of province during the months of January, February and March. Out of province Light wine club members receive their winter hold wines in May.
