SAQ Wine Reviews

I review and rate wines in SAQ Stores, Société des Alcools du Québec, the largest chain of wine stores in Québec. I also review wines sold directly from Quebec wineries and cideries, and other Canadian wine producers, along with wines in Québec depanneurs and other private stores.

You can search my ratings to find great wines in all price points and styles. Bookmark this page as your wine shopping list.
