Overview

This year's definitive guide to the best bottles in the LCBO.

Rod Phillips returns after the success of The 500 Best-Value Wines in the LCBO 2008 with The 500 Best-Value Wines in the LCBO 2009. Including many new selections that reflect additions to the LCBO's range, the 2009 edition again offers an unparalleled guide to getting the best out of the LCBO. The book's straightforward reviews will help both the wine novice and the experienced wine consumer cut through the LCBO's wide range of wines to identify the best values.

The 500 Best-Value Wines in the LCBO 2009 rates wines on a five-star scale, provides no-nonsense descriptions and suggests food pairings. It also provides answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about wine, among them: whether wine in boxes and plastic bottles is as good as wine in glass bottles; how to keep leftover wine; and whether the kind of wine glass used makes a difference. The 2009 edition follows the same easy-to-follow format, and now has an index of wines organized by price and food pairings. It also features a section on kosher wine.
