Lifford is the largest consignment agency in Ontario. Over more than forty years, we’ve built a diverse portfolio of top wines from around the world. These are wines from special producers, ones that we’ve travelled to and can tell you the story about. They’re the wines that you’d encounter at your favourite restaurants and that -- for the most part -- are not available on LCBO shelves. In our collection you’ll find a mix of classic, storied wineries alongside the next generation of young winemakers that are pushing boundaries and redefining local traditions.
