I’ve meaning to do a review of Peller’s Wine Club for a while now, so here it goes!
I’ve been a member for over 6 months now, and I have to say, when I get my wine delivered, it’s my favourite time of month! It’s $55 which is charged to my card automatically every month, around the 7th or 8th day on the month and I usually receive my wine around the 12th or 13th of every month.
For $55, you get two bottles of Peller Estate wines, usually one red and one white. The value usually ranges from $20-$25 per bottle, but sometimes more. The Christmas box had a bottle of sparkling Cuvee in it which was worth $35 and a recent box had ice wine in it which is expensive too!
With each delivery, you receive a pamphlet that contains information about the wine, along with two recipes, one to go with each of your bottles of wine. There is also usually information about upcoming events that members get special or early access to.
In my opinion, the wine club is well worth the $55 per month, because along with 2 bottles of wine every month, and access to member only events, there are also some great other perks that come with being a Peller Estate Wine Club member. You get free wine tastings at Peller Estate, Wayne Gretzgy Estates, Trius Wine and Thirty Bench. The tastings are usually anywhere between $3-$5 per tasting so this is an excellent perk! I was in N-O-T-L last year and went to all four wineries mentioned above and got all my tastings for free, as did my guests (you can usually have up to 5 guests with you), which was fantastic! Another perk is if you dine at the Peller Estate restaurant, you get a complimentary glass of sparkling Ice Cuvee, for you and your guests! We had lunch there last summer and the food was delicious and it was such a nice treat to get a complimentary sparkling wine, and let me tell you, they were generous with it too!
All in all, if you’re looking for a wine club, or you just want to try some new Ontario wines and you enjoy being surprised, then this wine club is for you! My own and only criticism would be that I would like to see wines from the bove mentioned wineries included in the wine club deliveries;Wayne Gretzgy Estates, Trius and Thirty Bench so I am hopeful that will happen! You can sign up for wine club here!
Until next time, keep sipping!
