Looking for Altovinum Evodia Garnacha 2010 in TO?

Anyone know of a restaurant or private wine seller that carries this? I had it on vacation in the Caribbean and it's a wonderful garnacha and dirt cheap, around $9. Not available through the LCBO or Vintages.

Thanks for any help.

    My husband buys the 2009 Evodia a dozen bottles at a time from Costco in Michigan ($7). If Costco carries it, there must be a whole lot of it available, though I see that the LCBO does not carry it.

      Thanks 1sweetpea and if I can't find a local source I might bug your husband to smuggle a case of the 2010 across!!

      He should try the 2010 as it apparently is much better than the 09...

        Actually, he said that the dozen bottles he picked up yesterday were 2010s. The 09 I mentioned was based on one I saw in the wine rack at home.

        It's safer to just declare the wine when crossing the border. Even with the duty, it's still about $10 US per bottle.

          I've listed an email address in place of my real name in my profile. I'm willing to pick up a case for you, but I will have to declare it at customs and pay duty. Just send me an email, if you wish.
