LCBO on College Street’s Little Italy

City Living, College Street / Little Italy, Little Portugal

Can we let you in on a secret?

When you live in the heart of the city, your condominium's lifestyle amenities may not be under its roof, but steps from its front door!

For example, while you may have already fallen in love with our gorgeous listing in The Movie House – holding centre stage on College Street's sizzling Little Italy – you may have missed the notable fact that it's just 52 steps from one our favourite amenities: the well-stocked LCBO located five doors south-west from the building on College at Euclid.

We decided to stop in on Official Business and “investigate the situation”. And by “investigate the situation” we clearly mean “buy a lot of wine”. Fortunately store manager, Olena, was on hand with some great suggestions after very nicely telling us, “You are not allowed to take pictures in here”. 



After our slightly awkward introduction, we chatted with Olena about full bodied Italian reds that were under $15. In her pleasantly non-judgmental demeanour she guided us to the “New Arrivals” section to share her favourites. Did you know the “New Arrivals” section is a carefully curated selection of interesting, smaller batch wines being introduced to the market? If a featured wine in this section sells well then it will graduate into regularly available stock, which means the selection is constantly rotating with new offerings. Olena suggested the full-bodied 'Carmenere' from the Chilean winery Root:1. A new arrival just this week, only three bottles from the two cases stocked were left.

Until we snapped them up.



Incidentally, although this LCBO location is smaller than other locations, the wine selection is both thoughtful and reflective of the neighbourhood palette. Appropriately, Italian and Portuguese wines are well represented given we're in the heart of Little Italy and steps to Little Portugal.

Have we quenched your thirst for wine? Consider exploring some new arrivals at this LCBO location (549 College) this weekend after checking out our extraordinary Movie House Loft Listing Offered At $469,000. Yup, we're hosting an open house this February 22 / 23 from 2:00-4:00pm and would love to see you!
