Province-wide, collectors are heading to Vintages sections of LCBO outlets to buy wine for Christmas. Aside from 24 December (Christmas Eve), the next two days will be among the busiest of the year!
About a month ago, I blogged some good words of advice on how to survive the rush, the usual platitudes about preparing lists and seeking the advice of product consultants. But the latter will be hounded by dozens of customers, so you’ll probably be on your own; or you will have to wait your turn, which could take awhile.
For my part, I have posted dozens of wine picks, which you can view on my homepage. There should be something for every collector; but in case you don’t see what you want, visit my Wine Picks Archive to check out more wine picks.
Also, when visiting LCBO stores, especially the big ones, better be prepared to wait for a parking spot. To make matters worse, plenty of patrons park illegally, which is something that irritates citizens like me to no end. Seriously, let’s all behave courteously and wait our turn!
