Awesome bottles every month: the Vin Bin

Our Vin Bin program, available at all Tasting Centre locations, allows you to explore the world of wine with the safety net of a personal guide! Our expert sommeliers will meet with you to determine your taste and budget, then hand-pick products delivered every month to your very own in-store cabinet.

How to set up your Vin Bin subscription:

1. Choose a location 

Choose the Calgary Co-op Wine Spirits Beer store where you’ll pick up your monthly wines: the Vin Bin program is available in our Beddington, Mount Pleasant, Crowfoot, Midtown, Oakridge and Shawnessy locations. We set aside a secured cabinet with your name on it right in the store.

2. Meet with a sommelier

Next, you’ll meet with one of our sommeliers where they’ll learn all about your tastes, preferences and needs. Once we know what you like, we carefully curate a selection of wines (or spirits!) we think you’ll love– if there’s a liqueur you want to try, we can add spirits to your monthly selection too.

3. Set a budget

You’ll set a budget for each month using a preauthorized credit card. (Minimum $150/month)

What to expect on pickup day:

On your designated day each month you’ll arrive to unlock your cabinet and find an array of wines carefully tailored to your tastes, regional preferences and budget. You pick them up and go; it’s like unwrapping the best kind of present every single month!

Other Vin Bin membership perks:

Personal concierge service

Our sommeliers can pick out special bottles for celebrations or create custom gift baskets.

Maybe you need a great bottle of wine for a hostess gift or a dinner party? We’ll pick out exactly what you need and leave it locked in your cabinet for you to pick up when you’re ready.

Wine pairing service

No time to research wines for a dinner party? Or maybe you just need something paired with a special meal. Email your meal info to your personal sommelier, and they’ll have the perfect pairing ready and waiting for you.

Classes & special events

If you’d like to learn more about wine, we can help! As a Vin Bin member you’re eligible to attend special classes or tastings.

Travel perks

If you’re travelling to a wine region anywhere in the world, your personal sommelier can help arrange an insider look at wineries.
