This past weekend, Julio & I put up the Christmas tree and started to decorate for the holidays. With a trip to Paris around the corner, not to mention dinner plans with friends and family leading up to the holidays, it’s time for me to start thinking about what gifts I am getting. Not only for those I love, but also for myself ! I am fond believer that during the holidays it’s important to remember to give yourself a gift as well, because in my opinion, you’ve earned it!
Recently I had the pleasure of joining the LCBO at their beautiful #LCBOpopup. Located conveniently at 600 King St. West in Toronto (inside The Spoke Club), the space is like walking into a winter wonderland. Not only was I able to shop for some of my favourite box sets I have come to love from the LCBO every year, but it offers the ability to sit down and try some of the delicious new wines that have hit the shelves just in time for the holidays.
Looks like Daniel enjoyed his time at the beautiful #LCBOpopup today ? From Beaujolais Nouveau to Ontario favourites that launched today, Hennessy & Disaronno Box Sets to the new Food & Drink Magazine, this is a Toronto must for the #Holidays! For more details on how you enjoy the space at 600 King St. West in Toronto and the amazing events taking place until the end of the year make sure to head to www.lcbo.com/popup ?? #LCBOnouveau #Partner

- Beaujolais Nouveau Dubouillon AOP (France,$14.95)

Sometimes bringing a beautiful bottle of wine to a night in with friends is the perfect way to enjoy a quiet night in. Or maybe that romantic experience that you and your special someone desperately need to disconnect in order to reconnect.
