Yes! In June of 2020, the AGCO (Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario) began allowing licensed Ontario wine agencies to sell mixed cases. You can view our online shop to see our current selection of Mixed Cases. We are frequently updating our mixed case selections, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on our latest offerings.

Unfortunately, no. AGCO rules now allow us to offer mixed cases of 12 or 6 bottles, but does not allow the consumer to assemble their own case of individual bottles. 

Not directly from our website, no. According to AGCO rules, we are only allowed to sell wines in case format through our website. But you can buy many of our wines by the bottle at the LCBO (see below).

We have a number of wines available by the bottle at LCBO retail stores and through the Vintages Classics catalogue. You can find all of our current, upcoming and past releases in the Shop at the LCBO section of our website.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and PayPal options at checkout.

All prices are listed in Canadian Dollars.

The AGCO stipulates all deliveries must be paid COD. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Cash, Cheque & Email money transfers.

Please note Nicholas Pearce Wines Inc. does not sell alcoholic beverages but arranges for customer purchases from the LCBO. 

The extended price represents the LCBO Retail Price including HST.  Our prices include all LCBO costs (product, shipping, margins, taxes) and our agency fee.

The breakdown of LCBO net pick up prices and taxes are available on request. We are happy to provide this information.
