How to pick a wine in the NSLC

Hi all, i am going to help you pick a wine in the NSLC.   I see a lot of people come in and say will you help me pick a wine, I don’t know anything about wine.  Well there is a lot to know, but most can do very well with a few simple questions.  First you ask yourself how much you are willing to spend?  SO lets say your have a budget of $20.  Next ask yourself who is the wine for?  What style of wine do they like? Red or White? IS it a celebration for someone, or is it just an evening with a nice meal or relaxing with friends?  Once you have that figured out  the rest is easy.  So lets say the person is a white wine lover.  Next ask if they like Dry medium or sweet wine.  Once you get this figured out its all laid out for you.  Pick a country, and go from there.  The tags in my store are there to help you and will tell you the style of the wine and the dryness and any food pairings you are wanting to pair with.  The wine is also laid out from top to bottom on the shelves.  Top are the Highest prices and best  we have to offer.  Second shelve are the middle of the road priced options, and the bottom shelf are the lower priced options and or value priced wines in a larger bottle.  Don’t let that bottom shelf fool you though because they have some awesome wines there that people gravitate to all the time, and i do as well.  For example the Smoky Bay wines from Australia and retailing for $10.99 and is an exceptional quality for such a small price, and flies off the shelf fast.  Well thats all for today folks, but the next time you are shopping in the store, take a peak and see what you find that new and wonderful in the NSLC. See you next week.
