Le Sommelier offers wine boxes, Zalto stemware, and Code38 wine knives…

We’re ready to help you with all your holiday wine gifting.

Do you have a client or friend you would like to thank with a selection of special wines this holiday season? Know a passionate wine lover who would make great use of the finest wine glasses? Would you like to gift someone (perhaps even yourself) with the most coveted corkscrew in the world? Hosting a party and need help selecting appropriate wines for your crowd?

Let our team help you give the gift we all would like to receive: something thoughtful and meaningful. We can handle gifts of any size, from a single case, wine glass, or wine knife, to several hundred gifts for your corporate partners.
I’m excited to share this year’s holiday wine gifts with you. We’ve put together a fantastic selection of some of our favourites in a range of gift packages to meet all needs, tastes, and budgets.
We’ve made it easy for you: quality, authenticity, personality – oh, and ample enjoyment. The lucky recipient will receive sommelier-selected wines and / or tools, packaged appropriately, and delivered right to the door.
We are offering two different wine packages this season. Both the Sommelier Selection and the Exclusive Selection were curated with care to ensure a balanced selection of bottles, and the utmost drinking enjoyment now, or over the next few years. The minimum order is a case (AGCO regulations) so depending on the wine, that means either six or twelve bottles. These can be gifted and shipped in any combination of single, two, three, or four bottle boxes.
The details:

  • All gifts will be hand delivered
  • Delivery charge is $12+HST per gift within the Toronto area. Additional charges for deliveries outside the Toronto area may apply
  • Optional white Pull-Tap®, double hinged, high quality Le Sommelier corkscrews are available for $9.95+HST

  • Wines are shipped in sturdy boxes that fit 1, 2, 3, or 4 bottles, similar to this one displayed right.

We are also very proud to offer Zalto stemware and decanters. Zalto glassware is preferred by sommeliers and wine professionals the world over, highly valued for their function as well as their design. These fine lead-free crystal glasses are mouth-blown and handmade in Austria, and in my honest opinion, are the most beautiful wine glasses in the world. This video will give you an idea of the precise workmanship you can expect in every glass.

Those passionate about wine, like us, will love these glasses. Here’s what some of the world’s most prominent wine critics think about them:

“I love it. It’s a fabulous glass.” – Robert Parker, Jr.

“What I love is that Zalto glasses are the thinnest and most delicate glasses I have come across, yet seem springy and almost elastic in the hand. Best of all, the manufacturers say they are best washed in a regular dishwasher. They are cheaper than many of Riedel’s top models and would give any serious wine lover a real thrill over the closeness of contact they offer.” – Jancis Robinson, MW

“Zalto glasses are in my view the finest on the market. Perfectly balanced, ultra elegant, and just a sheer joy to use.” – John Szabo, MS

We’re proud to represent Code38 across Canada, bringing the world’s top wine opener to wine professionals across the country. 

From the start, Code38 was crafted to be more than just another corkscrew. Australian Inventor Jeff Toering, an ex-aircraft engineer, was used to looking at the world through a product design and manufacture lens. 

The result? A corkscrew, or as he calls it, a wine knife, called Code38, which many top sommeliers say is a game-changing tool in their business. They are the corkscrew of choice in highly regarded restaurants such as The French Laundry, where it is part of the service uniform. Each Code38 is hand-finished by Jeff, and carries a lifetime guarantee. Watch a short video of the Code38 construction HERE

We are offering the P Type ProfessionalP-Type LIGHTP-Type Stealth, and the ultimate in rarity, the P-Type Titanium, with prices ranging from $295 – $1,299. Please click HERE for retail pricing.

Please submit your orders by Friday, November 22 to ensure your gifts are delivered on time.

To discuss any of the above gift options, please call me directly at 416.603.7026 or email me at bernard@lesommelier.com.

Thank you for your continued support. From the Le Sommelier family to you, I wish you a prosperous and festive holiday season ahead.
