How to Really Make a Splash this Christmas or New Year

A Killer Gift With Thought, Even If You Don’t Drink


The new site MyMoet is sweet, because it lets you bedazzle any Moet + Chandon bottle with a phrase in Swarovski crystals.  Great as a promotion gift, or to really impress that special friend. Design and preview your bubbly bottle for the upcoming holidays. For future reference, you can simply go here to order it.

The best wines under $10 at the LCBO

Ten of the current favorites.  Spend liberally, your guests, and your taste buds will thank you.

Last year, our government controlled LCBO came under fire for its increasingly pricey stock, including bottle surcharges. This holiday season they have stocked the shelves with brand new libations priced under $10.00.

$9.55
LA PUERTA 2007 SHIRAZ (Famatina Valley, Argentina)
The New World crossover style combines Aussie lusciousness with the peppery, smoky flavours of the Rhône.

$9.90
FINCA FLICHMAN 2007 MISTERIO MALBEC (Mendoza, Argentina)
From a star winery in Mendoza, this young gun over-delivers with malbec’s characteristic floral–wild berry fruit wrapped up in smoky oak and minty sage notes.

$7.80
ROCCA VENTOSA 2007 TREBBIANO (Abruzzi, Italy)
This terrific buy shows what huge strides are being made in southern Italy, where native grapes are undergoing a renaissance.

$9.95
CONO SUR 2007 VIOGNIER (Chile)
Viognier is a spicy floral variety rooted in southern France, but the organically minded winemakers at Cono Sur have fashioned a stunning example for under $10.

$9.95
MONTALTO 2007 PINOT GRIGIO (Sicily, Italy)
Sicily’s southern, sunny climate has delivered a very ripe, fleshy style of pinot grigio with flavours of honey, peach and fresh bread.

$9.15
TOLLO 2005 COLLE SECCO MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO (Abruzzi, Italy)
Montepulciano grapes deliver big wines; this one also has a long finish.

$7.10
CASAL THAULERO 2007 SANGIOVESE (Abruzzi, Italy)
You can buy a case for under $100, and you should, because you’ll go through it quickly. Full bodied, soft and spicy on the palate.

$7.95
DUNAVÁR 2006 MUSCAT OTTONEL (Hungary)
Modern winemaking has revived the quality of muscat ottonel, a central European grape variety that had virtually disappeared from the LCBO’s shelves.

$9.95
CONO SUR 2007 MERLOT (Chile)
So well made for so little money. Part of this tasty wine’s secret is the cabernet and syrah in the blend. It’s fruity and mellow enough for all tastes but has stuffing, as well.

$9.95
MASI 2007 MODELLO DELLE VENEZIE (Venetia, Italy)
One of the best whites under $10 at the LCBO. Blends garganega (the soave grape) with pinot grigio and pinot blanc to create an aromatic white.

Check them out in detail at the online LCBO product search.

Parasuco Jeans Warehouse Sale – 1st Dibbs on Nov 5, 2008!

One location only.  Get there on Wednesday and get what you want before everyone else makes off with the best of the best.  A very worthwhile sale to go to if you are into extreme Xmas gift buying.
