Toronto restaurants offer delivery on bottles of wine (and chips)

Mar 30 2020, 10:52 am

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) announced last week licenced restaurants and bars can sell alcohol with food takeout and delivery orders during this time.

And some savvy spots across the city — which may not have been offering delivery to begin with — have found a way to ensure customers can still enjoy their booze offerings responsibly, with a snack.

Both Paradise Grapevine and The Federal are offering wine-delivery services that are available with a bag of chips and, in The Federal’s case, a loaf of bread too.

Paradise Grapevine’s options can be navigated online, and you can order as much or as little alcohol as you like.

The site is intuitive, divided by beer, cider, and wine, with wine offerings also being broken down by reds, whites, rosés, sparklings, and oranges — aka skin-contact varieties.

Under the circumstances, this stuff is the only skin-contact that’s cool right now, so stock up.

At The Federal, “Bread and Wine club” packages have already sold out, but more are on the way, so keep your eyes peeled… unlike the grapes used in package 3, where skin-contact wine makes yet another appearance.

The Dundas West spot is offering packages for $171, $181, and $191, each of which comes with six bottles of wine (three varieties, two of each), plus a loaf of bread, and a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.

The offerings are 50% off what they cost on the spot’s menu, and you can add extras including hot sauce, Reunion Island coffee, eggs, milk, ice, lemons, limes, and — yes — toilet paper.
