For the WINE Lover on your list...
Gift Idea #1 - Subscription to SAVVY SELECTIONS wine of the month club
Did you know that our Savvy Selections wine of the month club is the largest wine of the month club featuring Ontario wines not available at the LCBO. And Savvy Selections was recently featured on CBC Radio’s “Fresh Air” as one of the top gifts for those hard to buy people!
With a subscription to Savvy Selections, each month, 3 different bottles of wine from a different Ontario winery are delivered to your home or office. The wines range from $15 to $35 per bottle and are selected by our Savvy Sommeliers ensuring that you will receive the best combination of red wines, white wines, sparkling wines and occasionally we would offer an option of dessert wine. AND you’ll get to know the winemakers and the stories behind the wines in our monthly Savvy eZine along with recipes our Sommeliers have chosen specifically to match each wine.
