These are the LCBOs with the most unique wine and spirits selections

Not all LCBOs in Toronto are created equal. Some have large vintages sections, others a greater selection of spirits and craft beer. And then there are the LCBOs in Toronto that bring us the finest tipples from certain exemplary regions of the world.

Pick up a wine from Australia, a sangria from Spain and a liqueur from Greece and have your own personal private tasting.

Here are the LCBOs with unique wine and spirits selections in Toronto.

Danforth & Broadview, 200 Danforth Ave.

This LCBO is in the heart of Greektown so it's no surprise they have the most extensive selection of Greek booze in the city. Go here for hard-to-find Greek offerings like Kardasi Botanic Liqueur and Greek Art wines that come in attractive gift-worthy bottles meant to reference classical Greek amphoras.

Steeles & Markham, 5979 Steeles Ave. E.

Hwy 401 & Weston, 2625 Weston Rd.

If you're in search of something Californian, head to this store where they've got baller selections from the States like a Senses Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 for a whopping $435 imported from the celebrated Oakville region of Napa Valley, known for a balance of warm and coolness along with a unique terroir.

Avenue & Lawrence, 1838 Avenue Road

If it's New Zealand wines you're after, make sure to head to this North Toronto LCBO for hard-t0-find wines from the land of the kiwi bird like the Auntsfield Cob Cottage Chardonnay 2016 from Marlborough's first vineyard and winery established in 1873.
