What is the Wine Club?

Great Estates Niagara Wine Club includes a rotating selection of wines from our prestigious Estate Wineries: Inniskillin, Jackson-Triggs, Kew, Le Clos Jordanne and Sandbanks. You will also receive special feature wines from our other premium brands. Wines are sent to your home or office each month or quarter to fit your budget and frequency needs.

At this time the Great Estates Niagara Wine Club is limited to residents of Ontario, Manitoba, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. Alberta residents can check out our other Wine Clubs options at Great Estates Okanagan.

Can I choose my own wine?

Members are able to select the club they want to belong to by brand (Great Estates Niagara, Jackson-Triggs, or Inniskillin) or by wine type (Mixed, White, or Red, when available). Our most popular clubs are the Great Estates Niagara four- bottle Mixed, Red or White. Home for the Holidays is another very popular club.

In each package, we will email a list of the proposed wine selection along with two alternate selections. Members can adjust their wine selections from this proposed list.

I haven't received any communication from the Wine Club, is something wrong?

We use email to communicate with you: receipts, tracking numbers, and information regarding member benefits, etc. are all sent through email. Please make sure that you have provided us with a correct email address that you check frequently. Sometimes, members will find Wine Club communication is filtered into a junk mail box if they have moderate to high spam settings turned on. Please add info@greatestatesofniagara.com to your safe senders list to ensure you receive Great Estates Niagara Wine Club communication.

Please note that if your membership has been purchased for you as a gift - emails are being sent to the person who has purchased it for you. Please have them forward Wine Club communication to your email address. At this time our system only allows emails to be sent to the billing email address.

How do I switch clubs?

Want to switch up your selection? No problem! Switch clubs by giving us a call at 905-468-4637 X 6170. Please keep in mind that club changes cannot be made to an order that has already been processed, but we are happy to make your changes effective for your next shipment!

Top Of Page

How and when do you ship me my wine?

We process your Wine Club at the end of the customization period, which typically lands at the beginning of the shipment month, although there are some exceptions (ie: Home for the Holidays Club, March Break, Christmas) that may cause us to deviate from this schedule. We will notify you a week before we charge your credit card to give you time to make any credit card or address updates. 

Please note that cancellation notice must be received 30 days prior to the next shipment.

Wines are shipped via Canada Post Expedited Parcel and usually arrive in 1-2 business days. You will receive an email with your 16 digit Canada Post tracking number when your package leaves our facility and can track your shipment at canadapost.ca.

Please note that since we are shipping alcohol, it will require a signature from a recipient 19 years or older and cannot be left on a doorstep, porch or other enclosure.

Canada Post didn't deliver my package to my home, now what?

You will receive an email with your 16 digit Canada Post tracking number when your package leaves our facility and can track your shipment at canadapost.ca.

You will receive a delivery notification tag will be left indicating when and where your package can be picked up. It is possible (especially in inclement weather) that a claim ticket is left in your community mailbox and not on your actual door.

Your package will be held at the post office for ten business days. If the package is not picked up within the ten business days the package will be sent back to the winery. We will contact you when we receive the package and hold it for one month. You can choose to have the package re-shipped to you for the original shipping charge, or refunded.

Please consider shipping to an address where someone is available during business hours to sign for your delivery.

I don't like one of the wines in my most recent shipment... can I exchange it?

In each package, we will email a list of the proposed wine selection along with two alternate selections. Members can adjust their wine selections from this proposed list.

If you've missed the selection period, wines receive in your Wine Club shipment cannot be exchanged. We hope that you will open the bottle of a variety that you don't think you like and be delightfully surprised!

We try to send a wide variety of our premium VQA wines in hopes that you will sample something new that you will love. Our Wine Clubs showcase a variety of wines - and are a sampler package of what Niagara has to offer! Wine also makes the perfect host/hostess gift so pass the bottle along to someone who will be able to enjoy it! If you are finding you prefer red wines or prefer white wines, perhaps you might be interested in switching to a red or white only club for your next shipment. To switch clubs you can contact the Wine Club at 905-468-4637 x 6170. All club changes will be made effective your next shipment (including cancellations).
