About Us

In 1973, four British-born Canadians took a close look at the quality of wine in Canada and compared it to what they knew was available worldwide. With this philosophy in mind, they founded Opimian – a non-profit cooperative dedicated to providing their members with the Total Wine Experience.

Opimian has been Canada’s premier wine club for more than 40 years. Our members enjoy an exclusive selection of more than 500 wines, tasted and selected by our wine experts, intimate access to the wine world and invitations to wine tasting events across the country.

Opimian has 27 chapters (geographical regions) across Canada, each with an appointed Area Representative. These wine-loving volunteers are the face of Opimian in your community.e offer Canadians access to wines that are EXCLUSIVE to our members and are not available through any of the provincial liquor boards.

With more than 16,000 members from coast to coast to coast, Opimian operates as a non-profit wine purchasing cooperative, where all members benefit from its nationwide purchasing power regardless of their province of residence.

Cellar Offerings

Your portal to wines from around the world

Cellar Offerings (wine catalogues) are our way of providing you with 500+ wines from around the world. All of our wines are specially selected by our Master of Wine. Each Cellar Offering is an educational guide, providing you with tasting notes, food pairing tips and cellaring advice for each wine. In addition, we include information on wine regions, grapes, vineyards and winemakers. With this, you can select wines suited to your tastes.

Our wine ordering season runs from November to June, during which our members receive 8 Cellar Offerings, each featuring one or more different wine regions – so you can truly taste the wines of the world. Best of all, no minimum order is required!
