Top 10-Stocking up for the Holidays

By: Treve Ring & Anthony Gismondi
Wines to stock up on now, so you're set for December

‘Tis the season for entertaining, often unexpectedly.

If you’re on your way to an impromptu gathering with friends, or your home is the site for the festivities, it always pays to have some well-priced, well-liked wines on hand. For some crowds, that means familiar favourites, while others might be keen to try something new and unknown. Here are recently tasted wines that cover all the options, get you through to the new year, and leave ample in your account for Secret Santa.

Every week Treve Ring and Anthony Gismondi collaborate on our Top Ten list, released on Thursday morning, often with a timely theme. If you count carefully the list will more than likely exceed ten names but only because we believe if any wine is tied by a score that makes our list it should be included. We know many of you are wine savvy and can do your own sleuthing to locate our weekly picks but for those who asked: BCLS means it is sold in government retail stores; when we say private wine shops we mean it could be in any private wine shop or liquor retail store (LRS); winery direct means check with the winery online. If it’s not sold in BC we usually try and give you a suggested retail price. Prices change hourly in BC – the price we post is what we are given at publication.
