Top 10 : Wines On Sale

By: Anthony Gismondi
Living in the bizarro world of monoply pricing.

This week's top ten is a bit of a head-turner.

We selected ten wines sold in BC Liquor Stores that impressed over the last year, but savvy wine buyers thought were too expensive compared to what they sell for in the rest of the world. Often wine fiends simply track down the wines outside of the province and then find a way to get them delivered to their homes. Today's list has been assembled by selecting wines that have been reduced in price as a consequence of not selling. What is still true is they are excellent wines, only now they are more affordable. Search for these online at BC Liquor Stores for store-by-store availability.
