Hi Natalie, January 20, 2011

The LCBO Vintages Release of wines this Saturday features several Chilean reds, noted below, for $12.95 that taste like $25 wines and some zesty sauvignon blancs to match many meals.

Thanks for making 2010 a spectacular one for the web site! According to Google Analytics, web site traffic doubled over 2009, no easy feat for one of the largest wine sites that's been operating for 10 years.

Now we're taking the site to the next level, with amazing new features. If you have an expertise in design and usability, and would like to give your input during the process, please e-mail me. It's gonna be great :)

Do you have friends, family or colleagues who also love wine? You can suggest them to me for this newsletter. I'll send them a quick note to let them know what the newsletter is about. This week features tips on starting and stocking a wine cellar.

There are two amazing Sauvignon Blancs in my picks: Blind River from New Zealand and Le Chablisienne from France. Both are wonderful, zesty whites for seafood, vegetarian dishes, quiche and most pizzas.
