Alcoholic Air Miles 6 – Grey Fox Chardonnay

27 Jan

 

Alcoholic Air Miles is a recurring segment on His, Hers and Theirs. It delves into the secret world of picking up bonus Air Miles from regular, everyday purchases from the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (“LCBO”) stores. Every month, the LCBO changes which items receive bonus Air Miles and He tries to keep you on top of those changes. These are His stories…

This is a special edition of Alcoholic Air Miles as it’s the first one in which She helped me write/research!  Exciting OMG!!1! Alcoholic Air Miles FTW!!!2!

We drank Grey Fox Chardonnay.  It’s a sweet white wine that’s easy on the wallet. We actually ran into a friend at a party once who told us that it’s her “goto” wine.  I guess if she’s running out of time at the LCBO and needs to pick something up to satisfy her thirst, this is it.  In all honesty, it’s not that bad.  And the air miles to $ ratio is off the charts at a whopping 0.63!*  I know. Amazing.

*-He’s not actually certain whether there are actually 5 air miles that come with this wine.  Maybe there are and maybe there aren’t.  She is the one who picked up the bottle last night and claims that 5 is the right number though…

I’m just trying to get this post out there so that everyone knows they can go and grab this steal deal while it lasts.  Which is only until the end of January.  Happy drinking!

Whoa whoa whoa. Her here. I’m a little indignant that He is claiming it may have 5 Airmiles. I can’t come up with any logical reason why I would lie about that. It definitely comes with 5 Airmiles. So go at ‘er.

I also told Him to provide my thoughts on the taste, since He wanted my input. I specifically said it was “grape-y” and “sweet at first, then a little sour.” He has no respect for my opinions, I swear.

Anyways. Time is running out. This wine is actually not that bad, and for $8, you can’t really go wrong. So go buy a lot, and then invite us over!

    I’ve been drinking this wine for a while and have decided that it does the job,, and at a price that I like. I actually served it to a “wine snob” and he decided it was superior and I was trying to pull his leg,, so I just never answered his query.
