Wine Reviews

L.C.B.O.’s Hidden Gems.

wine releases

Every once in a while, category managers of the monopoly invite wine writers to taste lesser known, limited-edition products.

They can be wine (mostly Ontario or British Columbia), sprits, or beers.

This particular tasting revealed a number of worthy products that I recommend.

All are available in all-brand stores mainly in Toronto, Ottawa, London, and possibly in smaller towns.
