Here’s part 3 of your DREAM WINE SHOPPING LIST for Ontario residents. Alternatively you could purchase a copy of BILLY’S BEST WINES for 2010 and do all your shopping in one big swoop. Just a suggestion. It’s at book stores or from billysbestbook.com
3. A few general purpose LOCAL REDS
Budget priced red is not one of Ontario’s strengths, but there are a few offerings that will keep most party goers happy. It’s often a good idea to tell friends that the local red wine style is lighter than Aussie Shiraz. Not lesser– just lighter.
