Dear Bacchus, June 21, 2013

The first official day of summer! There are plenty of choises in tomorrow's wine picks to celebrate the solstice.

There are more than a dozen wines under $20 that I scored 90+ points out of 100. Stock up now for Canada Day.

You can create a custom shopping list in a few minutes that shows you which stores closest to you have your favourite wines in stock.

You can print this list or access it on your smartphone with my mobile app. Who needs to run from store to store? Not us!

The Great Canadian Wine Match has now been covered in the major newspapers across the country.

There have also been interviews on CBC, CJAD, CTV News and coming up this Thursday at 8:30 am on Canada AM. Join us!

Enjoy your weekend,
