Yanick Giroux’s top picks

SAQ Sélection Boucherville

“For me, a great weekend spent with friends is synonymous with good food and good wine. Always on the lookout for new products and the latest trends, I often recommend wines that are suppler and a little less heavy, such as Domaine Thymiopoulos, made from young Xinomavro vines. This very enjoyable wine features subtle notes of spice and cooked fruit, and pairs nicely with Portuguese chicken or a selection of charcuteries. For lovers of grilled meat on the BBQ, I would suggest Il Bruciato, a magnificent Tuscan with Bordeaux influences and aromas of wood, spice and blackberry.”

Sophie Perrault’s top picks

SAQ Sélection Sainte-Julie

“During the summer, I love fishing and golfing with family and friends. And what better way to end a game of golf than by popping open a delicious bottle of rosé? I recommend Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses for its notes of citrus, and nice lingering finish. It’s the perfect wine to serve as an aperitif or with a salmon tartare. For those long weekends in the country and nights spent around a roaring fire, I love the rich caramel flavours of El Dorado 12-year-old rum. It’s delicious—especially under the stars!”
