For the first time in Ontario, a nouveau wine will be available in a lightweight, eco-friendly PET plastic bottle as eight nouveau wines go on sale at some 400 LCBO stores on November 20. The nouveau wines are being offered in a range of prices to suit different budgets.
The release of nouveau wines on the third Thursday of every November celebrates the first wines of the new vintage each year and marks the end of the harvest.
The eight nouveau wines are available now, with each LCBO store receiving a limited quantity of these popular wines—so customers are encouraged to shop early for best selection.
For more information on the 2008 nouveau wines and participating LCBO stores, call the toll-free LCBO Infoline: 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226). In Toronto, call 416-365-5900 or visit your nearest LCBO store. You can also access the LCBO website at www.lcbo.com.
