- We enjoyed a formal Wine and Food tasting that launched the 2014
Limited Edition Program. The commercial-equivalent wines were
excellent but traditionally the actual LE wines are even better we
can't wait to try them. The food pairings were from the LE2014
recipe booklet. If you're interested in learning more stop by the
store or check out our LE2014 page.

entertaining speaker. Participants had the opportunity to taste 5
single malts, some of which isn't available at LCBO!
