10. WINE GIFTING
An LCBO wine gift package that caught my eye this season is the Robert Mondavi pair. It has three things going for it. The wines would be perfect for a fancy dinner party. The price is right for a generous personal or business thank-you. And next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the Mondavi winery ““ an opportunity to toast one of wine’s great visionaries.
Fume is an oak-aged Sauvignon Blanc ““ citrussy zest combined with a glitzy feeling. The Cabernet is lush, spicy/sweet and cuddly warm. Parting with this package could be difficult!
