Let’s face it, we’ve all been using the motto “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere,” a lot more frequently over the past few months. While day drinking and burning through a bottle of wine has become the new norm, it doesn’t mean that an empty wallet should follow. To make your life a little bit easier, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best cheap wines from the LCBO, and they are all under $10.
If you’re someone who has noticed their bank account hurting from your evening (or mid-day) bottles of wine, join the club.
With more free time on our hands, it’s become a lot easier for day drinking to become the new norm. While we may be eager to try out some new blends while we have the time, it doesn’t mean they all have to be expensive.
While Adrian and I often love to reach for the vintages section, we have quickly discovered that pricey does not mean better. In fact, some of our favourite bottles are often on the cost-effective side.
Luckily, the LCBO has a variety of wines from across the globe that won’t cost more than you’re average cup of Starbucks coffee.
