Our 3-day weekend in Montreal was absolutely fantastic [my husband’s team took home the silver], although we had very little spare time in between the hockey games for exploring much of the city. Somewhat disheartening was my inability to track down any Canadian wines; with the exception of some ice wines that I have seen in the States, they were absent from both the grocery stores and wine shop shelves [at least the ones in downtown Montreal]. My initial disappointment quickly faded away when I discovered the abundance of French wines available that I do not have access to in the States. It was difficult choosing as I felt like a kid in a candy store and wanted to try nearly all of them, but between being on a budget and not wanting to get harassed on my way thru customs, I unfortunately limited my purchase to 4 bottles.
