1 thought on “Wines of Argentina: LCBO”

  1. I love wine. I only like sweet or fruity wines. I do not like dry, btetir or tart tasting wines. I feel like because my preference is sweet, it does put several limitations on the wines I drink. I would say that I prefer white over red. Simply because sweet red wines are even harder to find. I did find a sweet red called Roscato. I also sway towards Moscato D’Asti. I attended a wine tasting about a month ago, but unfortunately I was unable to add anything new to my collection.
