The Definitive Guide to Alberta's Best Wines under $25
Shelley Boettcher’s popular guide to the tastiest and thriftiest wines available in Alberta returns with all-new reviews of 150 wines priced under $25. Uncorked! is the perfect pocket guide to buying wine on a budget.

Shelley’s descriptions are snappy, succinct and straightforward. Even novices will feel confident about picking out a wine—for any occasion—with this guide. Each wine entry is illustrated with an image of the label, to help you identify the wine, and fun wine trivia, food pairing suggestions and “uncork” suggestions (occasions for which the wine is particularly suitable). Shelley even includes an icon of the closure used on the bottle (helpful if your corkscrew is broken!).

As well as covering red and white wines, rosés and sweet and fortified wines, Uncorked! has tips on cellaring, Shelley’s top dozen wine picks, as well as guidance on where to buy the wines and how to learn more about wine. Uncorked! is the perfect companion for your next trip to your local wine store.
