Come to Calgary for the Wine

California North?

Nope. Better than that.

Calgary, Alberta Canada boasts the best wine selection in all of Canada. In fact, Willow Park Wines and Spirits has a wine list of more than 22,000 wines. That's more than 5 times as many as the entire province of British Columbia, which can only sell from a provincial government controlled list of 4,000 wines.

If you're a wine lover, what more could you want? Other than actually being in Italy, that is. One local wine vendor told me that Many folks scour their local city or town looking for a particular favorite, and then hit the net. When they learn that it is avaialable here in Calgary they will poll their friends for a friend who knows a friend who lives in Calgary and ask a favour. (In case you are American reading this, that's how we spell 'favor' in Canada).

If you're not a wine lover, many place have affordable tastings to educate your palatte.
