Reply to "LCBO Price Alert"

More of my money has also been going to US wine auctions, foreign purchases (Italy for me), and to direct purchases from agents. There is absolutely no way that I am going back to the days when I'd set my alarm to go line up to buy a bottle of wine on release day.

The first-come, first served approach they have taken to Classics is basically a reversion back to the old communist method of distribution, and I'm not doing that. I used to buy something from every Classics release, and now I have missed every one since the switch to the new first-come, first served format. I also skipped the Dominus silliness. Having broken the habit, it feels rather refreshing.

Fortunately, I travel enough that I'm not dependent on the LCBO, but I feel for the folks that have no choice but be jerked around by the swings in LCBO policy.
