The Exchange – What is it?

WineAlign Exchange


Why should you join the WineAlign Exchange?

The WineAlign Exchange taps into the world of wines beyond the LCBO and delivers a curated, mixed case of top quality wines directly to your door. All the wines are 90pts+ and have been carefully chosen by our panel of critics for their quality and value. Less than 5% of the wines sampled are recommended for the Exchange.

We think our previous shipments have been excellent, but please don’t take our word for it:

🍷  “Oh, I cannot tell you how happy this shipment is making me. What a wonderful selection of very well-thought-out wines. I love everything about this, right down to the perforated notes, which I have nerdily taped to the bottles as I pop them in my wine fridge.” – Janine, Toronto

🍷  “More Domaine Acer please…​ ​now that was something I would not have found on my own!” – Kevin, Grimsby

🍷  “I was amazed at the quality of the wines, some absolute gems!” – Mary Lynn, Toronto

🍷  “I look forward to future shipments.” – Cynthia, Thunder Bay

🍷  “Our first shipment was fantastic.” – Scott, Toronto

How does the WineAlign Exchange work?

Imported wine not sold at the LCBO must be purchased by the full case, making it impossible to try new wines without spending a lot of money on just one wine. The Exchange allows you to experience great new wines without receiving an entire case of the same wine.

The idea is simple. Imagine 12 people show up at a friend’s place, each with a great case of about the same value. An ‘Exchange’ of wines takes place and each person leaves with 12 different wines – that’s the concept behind the Exchange.
