Do you find wine enjoyable but intimidating? With so many wine regions around the globe, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the choices. To put it into perspective, there are more than two hundred designated vinicultural areas in the United States, more than three hundred in France and here in Canada, there are more than fifteen wine regions populated in four of our provinces. How’s a consumer and casual wine drinker supposed to keep up?
Our personal locker program is unique to Co-op. You choose the nearest store location, and a locked cabinet is set aside for you inside the store. First, you’ll meet with Co-op’s wine experts—trained sommeliers who will quiz you about your tastes, preferences and interests with respect to wine. Once they get an idea of your wine preferences, they hand-pick a selection of wines just for you, every month. With the specialized knowledge and training of our sommeliers, you’ll be on track to experiment with wines you’re likely to fall in love with.
You’ll set a budget for each month (minimum purchase of $150/month) and on the first Friday of each month you’ll arrive to unlock your cabinet and find an array of wines inside. Each selection is carefully tailored to your tastes, regional preferences and budget.
If you’d like to learn more about wine, a membership in our locker program can help. As an added bonus, locker members receive invitations to classes and special tastings throughout the year. When you become a locker program member, you’ll receive personal service, expert advice and have a private wine concierge at your disposal.
