20 Wines Under $20

We all love a wine that delights our palate while stretching our dollar. At Vintages, we search the best wineries in the world to find wines that we consider less “cheap and cheerful” and more “affordable and amazing.” This much-anticipated annual roundup features 20 such discoveries, all under $20, with our experts’ stamp of approval.


Jas Paul, Product Consultant, Waterloo

Jas Paul, Product Consultant, Waterloo

With a passion for learning about different cultures of the world, Jas Paul feels that wine is a great way to gain understanding of a place, its personality and its people. He comes from a large family where wine was always at the dinner table, and his parents were amateur winemakers themselves, which instilled in him an appreciation for the work and care that goes into making wine. Something he enjoys as much as sharing a great bottle of wine with friends and family is sharing his wine knowledge with fellow enthusiasts.


Baird, Product Consultant, Toronto

Baird, Product Consultant, Toronto

A father of three and grandfather of four, Baird has spent 16 years with the LCBO and 10 of those as a Product Consultant. When this amateur chef isn’t pairing his favourite wines with his culinary creations, you’ll often find him on the golf course or ski run. He’s particularly fond of oaked Chardonnay from Ontario and California, French reds from the Rhône Valley, Italian Montepulciano and Primitivo, Chilean Carmenère, and fine Pinot Noir from Canada and Oregon.


Deanna, Product Consultant, Sudbury

Deanna, Product Consultant, Sudbury

Starting as a Customer Service rep with the LCBO in Muskoka, Deanna was promoted to Product Consultant at her Sudbury location and has loved every minute of her 16 years with the company. She enjoys sharing her wine knowledge and enthusiasm with customers, who she says make her job a delight.


Katherine, Product Consultant, Ottawa

Katherine, Product Consultant, Ottawa

Beginning with the company part-time while in university, Katherine has been with the LCBO for 30 years and has been a Product Consultant for almost 20. An avid gardener and accomplished amateur chef, she’s kindled a fondness for honing her skills with the barbecue and smoker. She relishes sharing her experience with customers and colleagues alike and is a big believer that good conversation is part of the journey and enjoyment of wine.
