Peller recently changed the format of their wine club, so I’m updating my review. The new wine club is called My Wine Life!
I’ve been a member for over a year now, and I have to say, when I get my wine delivered, it’s my favourite time of month! It has changed from $55 a month for 2 bottles of wine to $150 a quarter for 6 bottles of wine, which is charged to my card automatically every quarter, around the 7th or 8th day into the quarter and then my wine arrived around the middle of the first month in the quarter.
The part I love most about My Wine Life is you get 6 bottles of wine, but instead of all being from Peller, they are also from the other 3 wineries that are affiliated with Peller; Trius, Thirty Bench and Wayne Gretzgy. This means I’m getting to try a much bigger variety of wines. The delivery I had this month was mainly red wines, with a couple of white wines and the Trius Sparkling brut, which I love!
With each delivery, you receive a pamphlet that contains information about the wine, along with some 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 quarterly fee, because along with the wine, 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 or the Trius 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! And if you don’t like being surprised, you can actually customize your delivery for an extra fee. You can sign up for wine club here!
Until next time, keep sipping!
