Come to think of it, I've never seen a LCBO truck (unlike beer store trucks). Who does their shipping? Is it contracted out?
Yes, the smaller rural stores are serviced by private delivery contractors. I'm sure they realise that the product could freeze under extreme circumstances, but they don't use temperature-controlled trucks either.

On the other hand, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Normal wine should be good to -15C, and your Symington ports will survive even colder temps. So I wouldn't worry about it - especially in SW Ontario.

Thanks - I figured (hoped) as much but feel better now. Thanks for the feedback.

I hope you ordered the 94 Warre's. It's well on its way to becoming a classic vintage for VP.


No I didn't Confused I picked up the '94 Fonseca at LCBO auction last year, and then opted for the '94 Dows and Taylors from the Symington offer.
