About kwäf

Buy wine better. Buy better wine.

The kwäf Taste Buds are constantly tasting wines and have a track record for finding good bottles. It’s what they do.

Once they find one, the team jumps into action. We work with the winery to secure the wine at a sweet price - these are the kwäf Exclusives.

Then we get the word out to our kwäf Insiders (Sign Up!) so they can jump all over it. Quantities are limited, so we all need to act fast!

Nope. These wines are not available at the LCBO.

Who are the Taste Buds?

We want people to drink only good wine, at a fair price. And to really enjoy what they drink. That’s kwäf’s simple mission.

Kwäf is a team of professionals who love wine, and love to help others fall in love with wine. You don't need to be an expert to know what you like, and we appreciate all levels of enthusiasts and oenophiles, as long as you come with an open mind and a passion for finding the best of Ontario wines.

The kwäf tasting panel—the Taste Buds—consists of our Canadian team, including local, Marisa Renaud, who searches the market and does all the heavy lifting for you (we can't lie, we love our job). Sometimes we invite sommeliers, like Lindsay Groves to taste with us, introducing another professional palate and opinion to the mix. The roster of taste buds will continue to grow, as kwäf grows.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll get advanced notice of our kwäf Exclusives so you can jump all over them before word gets out. (A couple of offers a month for now.)

Plus, you’ll get a friendly email each week with our LCBO Picks—these are wines you can buy on sale at the LCBO that have been given the kwäf Taste Buds seal of approval.

Only good wine at a good price. How sweet is that?
