The LCBO has decided to help out wine agencies by allowing mixed cases to be sold to the public, long overdue. While this may not feel like such a big deal it allows agent to sell by the bottle and offer a way greater selection than buying wines in a case of 6 or 12 bottles, of the same wine. This will offer consumers so much flexibility in ordering how much and whatever wines they like. We are gearing up our website so that you can create your own mixed case of 6 or 12 bottles of any wine on our site. This news was much needed as restaurant closures have really hit the wine agent and restaurant community hard. #supportsmallbusiness
We are very excited to add our first German producer Fio wines. Fio wines is lead by Dirk Niepoort of Douro fame, Daniel his son and Philip Kettern. The wines are focused on using traditional techniques to coax the best flavors of the steep slopes of the Mosel and the Riesling variety. Many of the wines spend added time on the lees and age in large fuders. The wines are also unfiltered and bottled with minimal or no sulphur. Exceptionally precise, fresh, complex and elegant Fio wines are definitely a must have for your summer wine selection.
