We are pleased to provide you with the Spring/Summer 2021 Vintages Product Needs Schedule outlining opportunities for purchases and detailing product specifications and deadlines. We will be accepting submissions starting July 30, 2020.
All submissions must be made through the LCBO’s New Item Submission System (NISS). For new users of NISS, doingbusinesswithlcbo.com offers detailed instructions. For your convenience and as a reminder, an overview of the Vintages Purchasing Process is attached.
Please remember that the LCBO’s Spirit of Sustainability is an ongoing corporate priority. Special consideration will be given to products that support the pilar of ‘Good Planet’ by minimizing our impact on the enviornment. This would include products packaged in lightweight glass and/or follow sustainable, biodynamic or organic agricultural practices that meet CFIA standards.
Further call-outs for a successful submission include:
· Complete all entry fields accurately in their entirety, including all varietal fields.
· Ensure any scores entered relate to the actual vintage being offered (copies of accolades must be attached).
· Always include the LCBO # in the event the product has previously been released in Vintages.
On behalf of the Wines team, we thank you for your support. We look forward to working with you and your suppliers to grow our Vintages business by offering our customers an outstanding selection of premium product.
