If you share my dislike of restaurant wine pricing you may like to visit CafÃ© Taste in Torontoâ€™s Parkdale district. Lots of good local stuff at reasonable prices such as Lailey Merlot for $40, or Sandbanks Baco for $31. Taste is always buzzing with art shows, wine events, music, movie nights â€“ just a great local cafÃ©.

We’d love to hear about YOUR ideas concerning restaurant wine markups. Rumour has it that 300% is the norm. It’s VERY disappointing that the LCBO does not offer large discounts for mass purchases of a product, like they do everywhere else in the world. Why should an owner who sells cases and cases of a product have to pay the same as Joe off the street who buys just one unit?
