Hi Bacchus, November 7, 2014

On CTV News, we'll be chatting about the Nov 20 launch of Beaujolais Nouveau (yes, I know that's last year's poster to the left, but I love the vintage whimsy ;)

There are both whimsical and serious wines to tantalize your taste buds in tomorrow's LCBO Vintages Release ... it's a huge release of many styles and regions in anticipation of holiday entertaining.

This shopping list tells you how many bottles are in stock at your closest LCBO stores, or sort and search them here.

Speaking of the holidays, on an upcoming episode of The Social, we'll be talking about how to give wine as a gift.

What are your ideas on how to make gift wines special?

Have a magnificent weekend!

P.S. On that gifting theme, we paired books and bottles for the holidays on CTV News below.
