Dear [Contact.First Name], February 28, 2014

On CTV's The Social yesterday, we put the hosts to test in a competitive quiz about celebrity winemakers. Can you guess the celebs before they do?

Tomorrow's LCBO Vintages Release has many Oscar-worthy wines, including a great selection of cabernet sauvignons, the king of red wines. Find out why it's earned this status.

This shopping list shows the stock for each wine at your closest stores. You can also take a sneak peak at my picks for the March 15 release.

We also have award-winning wines in the SAQ, having launched Canada's first site to track all the stock from the SAQ, LCBO and BC Liquor Stores. Now you know which stores closest to you have the wines you want.

Our team of 12 wine reviewers in Quebec, all accredited sommeliers, offer their takes on the best wines for watching the Oscars.  Use the mobile app bar code scanner to instantly access all reviews.

We're starting the weekend early with a toast to 26,000 friends on Twitter, Canada's largest wine-lovin' social media community. Enjoy your weekend!


P.S. On Global Morning Live today we chatted about wine's finest movie moments, from Casablanca to James Bond (and that pairing of fava beans and chianti).
