Highly anticipated annual Bordeaux wine release just days away


VANCOUVER — An extensive selection of the finest 2012 vintage Bordeaux wines will be
available in BC Liquor Stores throughout the province later this week as part of the annual
Bordeaux release.

Each year, the highly anticipated event attracts wine enthusiasts and collectors — and more
recently, an increasingly diverse, younger crowd — all interested in taking home a bottle from
one of the world's best-known wine regions.

This Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, more than 2,000 cases and over 100 different wines from the
region — described by experts as "classic Bordeaux" — will be up for grabs at any one of BC
Liquor Stores 12 Signature locations throughout the province.

As a result of BC Liquor Stores' strong relationships with Bordeaux wine suppliers, customers
will have access to the best and most exclusive picks of the 2012 vintage. Prices range from $28
to $2,800 per bottle.

Product selection and quantity will vary by store. Vancouver's 39th and Cambie location will
carry the complete collection of 2012 Bordeaux, while the Richmond Brighouse, Alberni and
Bute, and Park Royal locations will carry an extensive variety of the collection.
