BC Liquor Stores celebrate 30 years of Bordeaux wines


VANCOUVER – Today marks the 30th anniversary of the annual Bordeaux wine release in BC
Liquor Stores.

Each year, this event attracts crowds of wine aficionados and collectors interested in
purchasing the latest vintage.

This year, 3,500 cases of the 2011 vintage, described by experts as “classic Bordeaux”, are for
sale in Signature locations throughout the province, as well as at select stores in Richmond,
Vancouver, White Rock and West Vancouver.

The BC Liquor Distribution Branch has developed strong relationships with suppliers in
Bordeaux, France, providing BC Liquor Store customers with access to a vast selection of
Bordeaux wines ranging from $25 to $2,800 per bottle.

Product selection and quantity varies by store, with the complete range of 2011 Bordeaux
available at Vancouver’s 39th and Cambie location. Bottle limits apply to some wines and
buyers are advised to shop early to avoid disappointment.
