Selection of wine delivery in Canada

You may order from an online merchant for shipping to and delivery in Canada. The present comparison shopping website only shows online selling stores with shipments across Canada. As a complement, you may consult availability province by province by typing the province name in a search box (at the top with sometimes a little sulfur, at the bottom around 10 mg/l).

Here is my selection of vibrant wines.

Price figures are only rough estimates of the US retail tags, at the date of the tasting. Wines are selected on personal criteria.

If the results above are too vague or the wine shops too distant from your area, then you may wish to explore a location more specific than Canada. The following places show recommended wines: Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, or try the wineshop explorer below.

There also are must-taste natural wines in Canada.
