It’s time for our ‘Winter reader’ month — your chance to say what you think, and to pass on your discoveries.
This year’s topic is ‘best local wine at the LCBO’. How many are there? Lots, or only a few?
Send me your picks. They should be VQA and not ‘cellared in Canada’ stuff, which is not really local.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could win a copy of my book — ‘Billy’s Best Bottles Wines for 2008.’
I’d like to kick things off with a white recommendation that I think is damn good — Colio 06 Chardonnay.
An everyday drink with lovely Spring day freshness. Lighthearted and very gulpable at any time of the day. And you can’t beat the price. Colio is one of the best locals at crafting everyday priced wines.
You may have to look around for this wine as not all stores have the ’06 vintage (don’t buy the ’05 non-VQA).
