History and Mission


In 1973, the Opimian founders took a look at the provincial liquor boards’ offers and compared them to wines available in other countries.

They observed the following: the varieties offered in stores represented only a small portion of the wines available in the rest of the world. To address this situation, the founders decided to create Opimian, a private club where wine enthusiasts, regardless of their path, could find a variety of quality wines.

Ever since that day, Opimian has been living by this commitment: connecting its members to the fascinating world of wine.

We work directly with some of the best winemakers in the world to find compelling wines we want to share, all curated by our team of Canadian Masters of Wine.

Opimian Wine Club de Vin is more than just ordering wines. It’s about sharing our passion for wine with a community of wine lovers. It’s also about learning the stories of the people behind the wines. But mostly, it’s about connecting to the fascinating world of wine. We care for our members just like we care for family — with an extra glass always on hand.


To exclusively CONNECT our members to unique wines, producers, services and experiences around the world, bolstering education as well as appreciation and discovery of wine.
