Dear Bacchus, April 25, 2014

Lots of spring-fresh reds and white wines hit the shelves tomorrow in the wine picks, including a focus on reasonably priced Bordeaux.

Here's your shopping list showing you the closest stores that have these wines, and how many bottles of each.

With Earth Day this week, we also focus on organic wines: are they better for you health-wise?

Do you get headaches from sulfites? Which are the best buys for organic wines?

You can also take a sneak peak at my top picks for May 10, which feature wines from Argentina and Chile.

Enjoy your weekend!


P.S.More than ever, we get our wine suggestions via social media ... personal referrals and discovery play a much larger and more influential role over traditional search engines in our wine buying choices.

Join me, and Canada's largest social media wine community, as we share the wines we love on Twitter and Facebook.
