how to buy Christmas wine in Canada

This post isn’t going to tell you which wine to buy your Aunt Marg for Xmas.

It’s not going to tell you how to get a deal on wine for your father-in-law the lush.

What I am going to remind you is that, much like your toddler or your dog, you need to take care of your wine when you buy it this month.

You can’t take off into the mall after you run through the McDonald’s drive through, leaving your kids happily munching while you take off and shop alone for two hours. Same with your wine.

Someone, somewhere once told me that you should consider your wine bottle the same way you do your box of chocolates. Any time it gets way too hot or way too cold you are going to change the way it looks, tastes and feels. And we’ve all seen what a box of chocolates that got too warm looks like. diarrhea.

Don’t stop at the liquor store, put the bottles on the floor of the passenger seat and then blast your heat on them all day, people. Don’t leave them in the trunk for a week then bring them in. They are like your kids. Keep the temperature moderate to avoid trouble! That’s all I’m sayin’! Otherwise you will need to go back and get new bottles of wine. And it’s a month ’til Christmas! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
