So, what should I buy?

My student loan is one month away from being completely payed off! To celebrate, I would like to buy a single bottle of wine for the same price as my student loan payments. There are no BC wines that approach that much yet (except for large format bottles) so I’m looking for international ideas. I would like something that is drinkable within the year although if I will put something away for the right amount of time if it’s needed. Anyone encountered any great bottles at around the $200 mark lately that I shouldn’t miss? Leave me a comment or DM me on Twitter and let me know if you have any ideas.

  1. Instead of buying one bottle for c$200, I’d SPEND $200 on 3 or 4 really good bottles of your choice or others’ recommendation. Why limit the celebration to just one bottle or one occasion? Prolong the celebration of being student-loan-debt-free with 3 or 4 occasions to share with friends. That way, a variety of palates can be pleased and you can share and prolong the good times!

      I thought of doing that, buying a little collection of wine. But because it was a single event, I thought a single bottle would be more appropriate. As it happens I have bought something which will be revealed in a soon-to-be-released podcast which I think fills both the collector side and the celebration side.

      Thanks for commenting! Cheers!

    You should go the the Signature store in Kelowna. Great selection of premiums from France, Italy and the states as well. Great Chablis, Rhone, Burgundy, Amarone.. etc.

  3. Champagne is always a great way to celebrate! You won’t need to cellar a bottle longer than a year. A lot of grand marques are quality wines. Some of my favs are Roederer & Paul Roger. Or seek our a growers Champagne. With a $200 budget you should be able to get a large format bottle, perfect for sharing the celebration or enjoy it to yourself all day long.
