Q: How do I order wines?
A: Wines offered by Creticos are available in cases of 6 or 12 bottles. These are exclusive wines made available to you through private imports. These wines are kept in inventory at the main warehouse of the SAQ in Montreal.
When you complete your order, you will choose the designated SAQ store of your choice. From the drop-down menu, stores have been grouped by region to facilitate your choice and select the one that suits you best. This store is where you will pick-up and pay for the value of the wines. The price of the wines listed on this site is set by the SAQ, and it is the price paid to the SAQ when you collect your order.
Q: Why is there a reservation fee?
A: These exclusive wines offered by Creticos are only available through private imports. They were chosen from wineries that are committed to responsible and sustainable farming. You will not find them on the shelves of the SAQ. Orders are available in cases of 6 or 12 bottles.
This fee covers representation, promotional, and order taking services, and is to be paid when you are completing your order.
Q: How long does it take before I receive my wine order?
A: Once you have received confirmation of your order, it usually takes 7-10 days for delivery at the SAQ store you selected. You will receive a confirmation of the delivery date by email, and you should receive a call from the store directly once your order is ready to be picked up. Usually, you have one week to take possession of your order.
Q: Can I return my order if I am not satisfied, or if the wine is not to my liking?
A: From the receipt of the order at the store, you have 72 hours to refuse the order. No returns will be accepted after this time. The reservation fee from Creticos will not be refunded, and an additional return fee of $ 9.00 per case will be charged.
The SAQ does not accept returns of non-defective products. A defective product can only be reimbursed. The customer must go to a branch of the SAQ, or contact the after-sales service at 514-254-8686 (option 4) for breakages and returns.
Q: Is it possible to order wines in Ontario or elsewhere in Canada?
A: At this time, wines are available for orders only in Quebec through the SAQ. For the Ottawa region, you can place an order and pick it up at the designated SAQ store in Gatineau, located at 31 Boul. du Plateau.
Discussion has been initiated with the LCBO in Ontario and new developments will be communicated shortly. For the rest of Canada, alcoholic beverages are administered provincially and no steps have yet been taken with the other provincial Liquor Boards.
Q: How do I order olive oil and honey?

A $12.95 shipping fee for orders in major centres of Quebec and Ontario will be charged. A surcharge will be applied for other regions and provinces in Canada and will be based on the delivery fee set by Canada Post.
