How We Operate
The Company holds a Licence to Represent Manufacturer #XXXXX issued by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (the "AGCO") for its representation of each of the vintners depicted on the Website, and carries on business to the public as "abvgroup.ca". We offer for sale, and deliver wine to you purchased through the Consignment Program operated by the Private Ordering provisions of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario ("LCBO"), and we or our affiliates are authorized by the LCBO as a consignment agent.
LCBO Guidelines define our role and the LCBO´s expectations. As a Manufacturer´s Representative or agent, we do not "sell" wine. Rather, the LCBO regards you to be its customer. We are the intermediary which processes the sale of wine from the LCBO to you. "Processes" means that we represent our manufacturers and assist in the transaction of your purchase from the LCBO. In some cases, information is requested by the LCBO from us for the submission of orders and the LCBO is bound by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, as is Abvgroup.ca. Should you ever feel the LCBO has used this information for purposes other than the completion of a sale, please notify abvgroup.ca. In particular, if you are contracted by the LCBO with questions about your purchase history, you are under no obligation to respond and we ask that you notify us immediately.
The wine prices shown on the Website are inclusive of the LCBO sale price, licensee discounts and markups and fees charged by AbV Group Inc. The LCBO sale price is available upon request. All wine is held by the LCBO in its consignment warehouse until your order is placed. Wine is not available directly from halpernwine.com nor does abvgroup.ca have any liquor on its premises excepting previously arranged pick-ups and products in transit.
