Wine is a lot like a school-yard playground: it’s full of different sizes, colours, shapes, tastes and smells. But you don’t want a one-size-fits-all approach to wine, so that’s a good thing. And we love turning people on to the wine-making that’s happening out in the wide, wide world of wine that comes in under 20 bucks, despite the usury of the LCBO. Dare we say that if the piece-by-piece dismantling of the IILA (the federal Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act of 1928) and Provincial opportunism leads the way, we’re going to be able to re-label this page “fifteen dollars.”

But that’s not today, and there’s still great juice available for you that will come with QE II’s smile and a bit o’ change.  There’s enough vin ordinaire out there and we are pleased to leave a wide swath for the marketing brands and tank-farm ‘wineries.’ There are certainly many occasions that call for a more spendy, showy bottle (or two) but wonderful, wallet-friendly wines for Wednesday are the delicious deals that everyone likes to know about. [And it’s always a great secret to share.]

We just don’t believe that you have to pay for glossy ads every time you pull a cork and we’re certain that being a little off the beaten path as an option, you’ll discover something exciting and new in our Wines Under 20 dollars offerings. Quench your thirst with these wines that are guaranteed to suit both your palate and your pocket. Looking for something specific? Maybe you had something before that just fit your weekday wine needs. We have new and old everyday favourites come into inventory regularly, so make sure to check this page often for the latest in the best bang for your buck – er, twenty bucks.
