Tis the season for dinner parties, host gifts, and delicious holiday cocktails. At Wine Rack, there’s a selection of Canadian brands that will make you the star of the show, whether you’re bringing them over to a loved one’s to gift, sharing, or drinking yourself.

This holiday season, BASK in 0g sugar per serving wine. Not because you need to, but because it will seriously help you save room for all the delicious food there is to enjoy, and save you from a nasty sugar hangover.
BASK gives you one less thing to worry about, so you can zero in on the moment and savour every second. This wine is delicious and you won’t be missing the sugar at all – whether you’re pairing with food or sipping solo.
Cartier Wine Cream Liqueur
Wait a minute, this is wine? Similar to your creamy Bailey’s drink to enjoy on the rocks or poured into your favourite coffee, Cartier Cream Liqueurs is available in multiple flavours to sweeten up your bevvies.
Try out S’mores, with toasty graham cracker on the nose, creamy vanilla and marshmallow on the palate; Irish Cream with a creamy blend of vanilla, caramel, toffee, and chocolate, with top notes of buttery biscuit and whisky; and Salted Caramel with intense notes of toasted caramel, vanilla with chocolate undertones complimented by a hint of salt on the finish.
Even better, Cartier comes with a lower price tag than the Irish whiskey-based original.
Inniskillin Reserve Series
Inniskillin’s Reserve Series wines are made with grapes selected by their winemaker from specific lots of premium vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula. The result is an exceptional, limited edition selection of VQA wines that reflect the finest assemblage of the varietals from different vineyards.
If you like…
Lighter white wine, try their Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris.
Deeper white wine that’s best with food try their Reserve Chardonnay.
Lighter red wine, try a bottle of the Pinot Noir or Cabernet Franc.
Deeper red wine that’s best with food, try their Merlot.
Saintly bottles are the perfect gift this season, but you’ll want to stock up yourself, too. Not only do these bottles look amazing on your bar cart or wine rack, but they’re the perfect thing to open and celebrate any occasion.
Available in Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Sparkling White, and Sparkling Rosé.
