Talk about a win-win. Have a friend, family member, or co-worker join Opimian and you will each get a case of wine to celebrate. Not only is the wine worth far more than the cost of the Membership, but you’ll also have more people to share in the joy of wine. Just direct them to Opimian.ca/jointheclub/ , be sure they enter your Member Number when prompted and add the Promo Code Opimian50 when prompted for that too. We’ll take take care of the rest.
