12 Days of Gifting at LCBO Day 10 - A Great VQA Gift Idea from 'The Great One'

TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - When it comes to Wayne Gretzky, the words 'finesse' and 'elegance' not only describe the sight of him taking a shot from the blue line, but perfectly define his No.99 wines from Niagara-on-the-Lake. The No.99 Wayne Gretzky Cabernet Merlot VQA Gift Box (LCBO# 384537, 750 mL for $19.95) comes with a pewter coaster. The wine is a fruity, bold blend of 48 per cent Merlot, 47 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and five per cent Cabernet Franc.

Holiday is the perfect time to 'goLocal' with Ontario VQA wines, either for entertaining or gifting. This is especially true for VQA Icewines which see nearly 35 per cent of total sales during this time. They are the perfect gift or special indulgence for guests before or after dinner (or in an Icewine martini). Check availability online using the product search function on www.LCBO.com.
