SAQ Wine Reviews & Ratings

I review and rate wines in SAQ Stores, Société des Alcools du Québec, the largest chain of wine stores in Québec. I also review wines sold directly from Quebec wineries and cideries, and other Canadian wine producers, along with wines in Québec depanneurs and other private stores.

You can search my wine ratings to find great wines in all price points and styles. These wine reviews are updated daily, so bookmark this page from your wine shopping list.

Red, White & Drunk All Over

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Eric Asimov, The New York Times

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
