Top 10 : Holiday Party Wines

By: Anthony Gismondi & Treve Ring
Calling all organisers: buy early

Last week we published a list of wines for anyone planning an office party in the Vancouver Sun.

The list goes beyond the office however; it will work for anyone planning a large party this holiday season, especially if you are hoping to save a few bucks on the wine but not give in on quality. It's no easy task, but here are ten diverse selections, available in government liquor stores, that should cover all the palates in the room including the nerdiest of wine drinkers. This list has current prices, but you can expect them to fluctuate throughout the holidays as suppliers put them on and off limited time offers or LTOs.

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.
