Thanks very much for replying i guess i should of made myself clearer.Its for gifts i really dont care about price or origin and im not to sure what these people would pair it with .
I guess i should go to the saq and ask for suggestions
and i dont know if i should go with red wines or white .I am so sorry i just read my post and i can see where its not really making sense..Thanks again seasons greetings..
Never underestimate the power of bubbles; there are nice Champagne available this time of year (Doquet, ... ) that you can buy a couple of them as a gift (makes a better impression than just one botlle).
Whites : go for higher-end Bougogne (the like of montrachet ) or Cote du Rhone Condrieu; or go for classics like sauterne.
Red : (my preferences) Are for high-end Loire wines (Sancerre).
Sweet : if all else fails, go to Porto. (find an older one).
my current favorites:
Red: Shiraz E Minor, Barossa Valley, Australia, SAQ 11073926 @ $16.95
White: Pinot Blanc Vivolo di Sasso Veneto, Italy SAQ 46465 @ $11.45
Bubbly: Wof Blass Gold Label Pinot Noir Chardonnay Mousseux, Australia SAQ 10969966 @ $19.85
