WineAlign Exchange Product Call

Red Wines for Lot #10 –  September 2019

We are currently looking for high quality RED wines in the $25 (tax included) range in quantities of up to 70 cases. You’ll be paid quickly, directly by the consumer and we’ll be paid a small commission. Samples need to be sent to our office as soon as possible. Wines will need to be delivered to our community cellar by the end of August 2019.

The WineAlign Exchange is a subscription service where consumers receive a curated, mixed case of consignment and private order wine once every three months. We currently have about 600 quarterly subscribers.

Each case of our MIXED case option contains four white and eight red wines. We also have an ALL RED option which contains two bottles of six different red wines. For Lot#10 (September) we are currently looking for red wines from either the New or Old World. Final order numbers will be known at the end of May, but we expect that we will need up to 35 to 40 cases if it’s in the MIXED case or 65 to 70 cases if it’s in the ALL RED case. If the wines are being private ordered, we can provide a list of names at that time.

There are multiple benefits to partnering with us in our Exchange program:

  • You are paid just before wines ship to consumers in September; no payment terms and no chasing down payments.
  • All purchasing is completely automated – you don’t deal with credit cards, we do.
  • One stop delivery of all wines to our Oakville cellaring facility.
