Best Wines Under $10
$9.55 | Famatina Valley, Argentina
The New World crossover style combines Aussie lusciousness with the peppery, smoky flavours of the Rhône.
$9.90 | Mendoza, Argentina
From a star winery in Mendoza, this young gun over-delivers with malbec’s characteristic floral–wild berry fruit wrapped up in smoky oak and minty sage notes.
$7.80 | Abruzzi, Italy
This terrific buy shows what huge strides are being made in southern Italy, where native grapes are undergoing a renaissance.
$9.95 | Chile
Viognier is a spicy floral variety rooted in southern France, but the organically minded winemakers at Cono Sur have fashioned a stunning example for under $10.
$9.95 | Sicily, Italy
Sicily’s southern, sunny climate has delivered a very ripe, fleshy style of pinot grigio with flavours of honey, peach and fresh bread.
$9.15 | Abruzzi, Italy
Montepulciano grapes deliver big wines; this one also has a long finish.
$7.10 | Abruzzi, Italy
You can buy a case for under $100, and you should, because you’ll go through it quickly. Full bodied, soft and spicy on the palate.
$7.95 | Hungary
Modern winemaking has revived the quality of muscat ottonel, a central European grape variety that had virtually disappeared from the LCBO’s shelves.
$9.95 | Chile
So well made for so little money. Part of this tasty wine’s secret is the cabernet and syrah in the blend. It’s fruity and mellow enough for all tastes but has stuffing, as well.
$9.95 | Venetia, Italy
One of the best whites under $10 at the LCBO. Blends garganega (the soave grape) with pinot grigio and pinot blanc to create an aromatic white.
