Is the Galleon website for wine enthusiasts only? Do I have to be recommended by a friend?
Galleon caters to everyone, from wine connoisseurs to novices who want to learn more about the wonderful world of wine!
You don’t have to be recommended by a friend. Simply register as a member on our website to see our products.
What can I do if a product is defective? Can I return it for refund?
Yes, you can. Bring the item and your receipt to an SAQ outlet. The bottle must be at least three-quarters full and it must have been purchased less than a year before.
Why do you only sell wine by the case and not by the bottle?
The SAQ requires us to sell our wines as private import products by the case.
We work closely with producers to make premium wines as accessible as possible by having them modify packaging before shipping. We already offer some premium wines in three-bottle cases and some Magnums and Jeroboams in single-bottle cases.
Can I order Galleon wines in restaurants?
Of course! Many of the finest restaurants in Quebec trust us with their wine needs. Contact us and we will be delighted to recommend a restaurant that carries your favourite wine.
Do orders have to be placed online? Can I order by phone or email?
You can order online, by phone or by email. Call our customer service team at 514-932-2626 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Which delivery services do you offer?
We deliver your order to the SAQ branch nearest you that is authorized to handle private imports. Our website will indicate which outlets offer this service.
We also offer members a home or office delivery service for a flat rate of $20. This delivery service is provided by Canada Post, which also delivers on behalf of the SAQ.
Can I order your products from Ontario or another Canadian province?
You can make purchases in every Canadian province. All you have to do is contact our customer service or your sales representative.
We plan on rolling out our service across Canada as soon as possible.
When I order wine from Galleon, how do I know the quality hasn’t been compromised by improper storage or transportation?
The SAQ handles wine transport and storage throughout Quebec, as well as delivery to its stores. Canada Post takes care of delivering orders to your home or office.
Does this website comply with provincial laws and the regulations established by the SAQ in relation to private imports?
Yes, we can assure you that we have verified and fully comply with all applicable regulations.
Can I earn SAQ Inspire points on orders placed with Galleon?
Unfortunately, you cannot collect SAQ Inspire points on products or services for which a personalized invoice has been created, and even private imports ordered directly from the SAQ are not eligible.
What level of personalized service do you offer (compared to your competitors)?
At Galleon, we are committed to providing highly personalized service. We get to know our members and offer them customized advice based on their individual needs and preferences.
We listen to our members and will do our utmost to locate a special vintage, a particular bottle size or a specific appellation. This enriches both the client’s experience and Galleon’s portfolio.
We are also proud to serve several private companies and foundations that entrust us with organizing special events for their clients or employees.
How do you choose your producers and what kind of relationship do you have with them?
First of all, we only sell wines that we love!
Our team tastes every wine that we import.
Our producers are as passionate as we are about authenticity, respect for terroir and the creation of a highly refined product.
We collaborate with the most reputable producers in the world and also with smaller estates. If we carry a certain wine, it means that we were very impressed by the wine and the winegrower!
We are lucky to have close working relationships with each of our producers.
We know them all individually and have nurtured relationships built on trust over the years.
