Downtown is better

If you live near downtown Guelph – and who doesn’t want to? – it’s annoying that you have to drive to a decent wine store.  No longer!  The LCBO downtown is under new management and they are bringing in a great selection of Vintage quality wines. So yes, now you can always go downtown.  If you’re like my Mom, you  have that Petula Clark song in your head now. “When you’re alone …” I am a little embarrassed to say that groundskeeper Willie’s tryout with the B-Flats  sings in my head.

Homeric references aside, the wine selection is pretty good.  Guigal Cotes du Rhone, several high-end Ontario wines, and all within walking distance. Another victory for the downtown over the south end – or as I call it, “North Milton”.

I recommend the Guigal Cotes du Rhone – great producer, region, and  year – and the Oyster bay Chardonnay – serve it cold.
