kwäf is a new service I just heard about a few weeks ago. They are a new type of wine club who source and curate the best wines to include in their monthly shipments. Because every wine drinker knows that even good wineries can make bad wines, kwäf wine experts taste about 50 wines each month and narrow it down to 10-15 options. From there, kwäf’s sommeliers review the 10-15 options that are being considered for listing and finally, 6 bottles are approved for the Club K kwäf package.
kwäf offers a great way to experience great, new wines which aren’t available at the LCBO. It also gives wineries an opportunity to showcase some of their best wines and make sales outside the winery. If you end up discovering a new favourite through kwäf you can order the wine from kwäf by the bottle or purchase directly from the winery.
For me, kwäf allows me to discover new wines without investing all of the time and money into exploring them. That may sound incredibly lazy, but who are these people who can spend every weekend visiting wineries? WHO ARE YOU?! (And can we be friends?)
The Goods is exactly that – two of the best wines of the month. You can order in 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 month subscriptions. The $59 cost includes both the wine and the delivery, which not only makes it great value but also incredibly convenient to send as gifts. I just sent a few out to friends and business contacts for holiday gifts!
Spoiler alert: This month’s package includes my two favourites from the #WineWednesdayTO tasting at Gilead: Stratus Vineyard’s 2012 Screw Red, and Malivoire’s 2012 Courtney Gamay.
For $119, you can sample all six of the final options chosen by kwäf owners and sommeliers. The cost includes tasting notes and shipping. You can purchase a one-time delivery or subscribe for a delivery every three months.
