‘Tis the season to drink wine (as if we needed any reason). As always, John and I will get asked “what wines should I bring to dinner” or “can you suggest a few bottles of wines for over the holidays”. So to preempt this, here are five wines we each suggest (so 10 total) that are in the LCBO currently, and will not make you stand out when you present it at the front door. Have a safe holiday and here is to some good wine!!
