Taste Stations

NLC’s unique Taste Stations allow customers to try before they buy! Taste Stations are automated sampling machines that hold up to a dozen wines and can be found in many Liquor Store locations. Purchase a Taste Station card at your local Liquor Store and sample various wines before making a purchase, an excellent way to find new favourites.

How to sample the product from the Taste Station:
Purchase a sampling card valued at $5, $10, $20 or $50 and use the card for self service at the stations. Each card contains an embedded chip that limits the customer to three small samples over a one-hour time frame to ensure customer safety. Sample costs vary depending on the wine but normally range between $1 and $2.

1. Pick up your Taste Station Sampling Card at the cash.
2. Insert card with chip side facing to the right.
3. Place tasting cup under spout of desired product and then press the word “Taste” to pour your sample.
4. Remove your card after pouring is complete.
5. Enjoy responsibly!
