12 DAYS OF GIFTING AT LCBO
DAY 5 – CELEBRATE WITH SPARKLING AND LIGHT
December 10, 2014
The quintessential choice for celebrating or gifting, sparkling wine and Champagne sales dominate during the holiday season. The Piper-Heidsieck Brut Light Box (LCBO#384487, 750 mL for $54.95), presented in striking red, black and gold aluminum packaging, makes an eye-catching gift. The box’s lid converts to a stylish candle holder that can be saved as a holiday keepsake. Made from a blend of pinot noir and pinot meunier, the Champagne is classic, structured and full bodied.
Sales of sparkling wine and Champagne through LCBO and VINTAGES last year totaled $34.6 million, an increase of 6.5 per cent. Global demand for Cava, Prosecco and other sparkling wines from around the world continues to soar and LCBO sales are keeping pace. With bubbly available in every price range, there is something for everyone. Check availability online using the product search function on www.LCBO.com.
“This is the time of year where customers want to indulge and nothing says extravagance more than Champagne,” said Igor Ryjenkov, M.W., LCBO’s Category Manager for European Wine. “Not only does it make a very special gift, but it’s a top quality wine that is incredibly food-friendly. You just can’t go wrong with Champagne.”
