I love it when December rolls along; I have tons more opportunities to open up some good bottles with friends. This month, I’ll share some of the bottles that I really get excited about sharing. I also typically have put together a mixed case of wine for a growing number of you for December house parties. This year, I’ve put together a very eclectic case and I share the items with you below – all of the products for the case buy this month are available at your local BC Liquor Store as well, however, if you want a case of great affordable vino for the holidays, this case is just easy shopping!

This month, we are focusing on Fortified Wines. Basically, these are Ports and Madeira wines, though many different countries produce this style of wine. All of the wines below are from Portugal or the Portuguese islands of Madeira.
Each year, we produce a very few gift paks for friends and family. This year, we have three different wine combinations available in very limited quantity. All of these wines are unique in that they are not typically available in retail stores and are from unique areas or grapes. All come in beautiful wood gift boxes, produced locally, with sliding covers. We will put these together for you and arrange to deliver them to you for your Christmas gift giving. Please be aware, once these are gone, they are gone and we cannot order further quantities in the gift boxes. Read more

Well, the cooler weather certainly arrived this month, so I am switching gears and slowly working my way back to red wines. There are three reds that I have tasted this month (some repeatedly!) that are really impressing me for their current drinkability and their value. I’ve also chosen wines that are easier to find, as I get a number of requests for vino that can be easily picked up ‘on the fly’, so all three of these are available at select government BC Liquor Stores.
