Hi [Contact.First Name],

Do you know how I know that you're in a cheese rut? Because you don't even realize it.

Stay with me on this circular reasoning ;) Just as it's easy to get into the habit of drinking the same wine frequently, it can happen with cheese too.

Why not try a new Canadian cheese this weekend, one that you may never have heard of like Friulano, with the tasty recipe below.

There are lots of terrific wines to pair with Friulano (and other cheeses) in this Saturday's LCBO Vintages Release.

Here's the complete list of wines showing the LCBO stores closest to you that have them in stock now.

Check back tomorrow for stock updates to create your custom shopping list.

P.S. Click on the grey Heart Icon beside any wine (like this one) to add it to your Buy Again List. You'll get an e-mail alert when the wine is back in liquor stores.

As usual, there are lots of laughs and insider tips. You can watch the video here.
