PRESS ACCESS NOW DENIED
On February 21, the LCBO's VP of Communications denied press access to ALL FOUR upcoming Vintages preview tastings along with the monthly LCBO new wine/spirit previews. We are dedicated to continue bringing readers as many reviews as possible. Our new VINTAGE ASSESSMENTS REPORT enables you to see ALL THE ITEMS RELEASED - what was tasted plus all the previous reviews for everything released.

special visitor access
Here is a sample of the previous May 25 VA Report with 116 detailed reviews with only 16 unrated items.
