OUR NEWEST MEMBER SERVICE WILL DEBUT IN MAY 2017!
Exclusive Wine Offering
Returning Sommelier Domer Rafael is currently sourcing wines from all over the world for you to enjoy at, or away from, your club. Selected wines will be exclusively available to members of the Manitoba Club and will not otherwise be available for sale within the Manitoba marketplace.
We expect to have, at any one time, between 60 and 80 different wines at varying price points (i.e., reds, whites, roses and bubblies) for you to choose from. The wines will be available for you to enjoy when at the club (with the typical $25 corkage fee), as well as when you are away from your club, as a result of our special arrangement with G.J. Andrew’s Food and Wine Shop. Many of the selected wines will be available in very limited quantities, while others will be more plentiful in their supply.
The exclusive wine offering will feature:
- 25% of featured wines in the $15 to $25 per bottle price range,
- 50% of featured wines in the $25 to $80 per bottle price range,
- 25% of featured wines in the $80-plus per bottle price range
Wine Presentation Cabinet
The wines will be displayed in the cabinet with their retail purchase price and when selected to be enjoyed within the Club, will be subject to the Club’s usual corkage charge ($25 for a standard 750 ml bottle).
Private Member Wine Lockers
This is an amazing opportunity that will allow you to purchase wines from the club’s ever changing wine offering and store them within a beautiful locker for future enjoyment when dining socially at the club.
Many of our exclusively selected wines will arrive to the club in very limited quantities (1 to 10 cases). Each locker will allow you to store, in a perfect temperature controlled environment, up to 9 standard 750 ml bottles. Your locker will include a nameplate that you can have engraved with your name, corporate name, or have a bin number allocated to the locker should you prefer to remain anonymous. Members that reserve a locker will receive front-of-line access when new wines arrive at the club prior their release to the general membership. Another special benefit of the wine locker program.
There are only 35 lockers still available in this initial offering (at time of printing). We expect to have the lockers and display cabinet installed, and the new wine offering fully available, in May 2017. The capital cost for a locker is $1,000. The monthly subscription cost for a locker is $45. The monthly subscription cost is offset by a $5 per bottle credit when wine is enjoyed from the locker in the given month. Essentially, if the locker’s 9-bottle inventory was enjoyed during a given month there would be no monthly subscription cost charged to your account during that period.

Private Member Wine Lockers

This space is currently unused and offers an incredible opportunity to create a truly unique member-only offering. The lockers will be allocated on a first reserved basis. At the time of writing this letter, members have committed to 25 of the 60 available lockers.
