Dear [Contact.First Name], March 23, 2012

A warm spring Friday afternoon ... I love this weather we're getting. Now all we need is some great wine for the weekend. There are still lots of terrific reds, whites and roses from the LCBO Vintages Release last Saturday.  

Pick your wines with one click, then get your shopping list that tells you which LCBO stores closest to you have the wines you want. Maybe you'd like to slip out early today and go shopping? I won't tell anyone :)

I'm having so much fun sharing wine tips and sips with 19,007 wine loving friends on Twitter. I'm also getting a kick out of Pinterest. And yes, there's my love-hate relationship with Facebook. Join me wherever you like to get social.

Have a fabulous weekend!
