For over 15 years I have been doing a wine list for friends. I started it because buying wine in BC government liquor stores can be overwhelming and time consuming -- given the number of options -- and expensive (if you pay too much for a wine you don't end up liking!).
So now, every month or so, I put together and send out a list of wines in different price categories that I think represent good value. I have either tasted them myself or bought them for my cellar based on recommendations from others whose advice I trust.
Examples these lists can be found to the left. If you would like to get on my mailing list -- there is no charge -- just drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
