The Best BYOB restaurants in Montreal x La QV
The level of popularity that the ‘bring your own wine’ (BYOB) formula has earned is in no way surprising. Considering the versatility, individual adaptability, and feeling of engagement that BYOB restaurants provide for their diners, it only makes sense! Whether you are working with a smaller budget, or just have an all-time favourite bottle of wine, spending an evening in a BYOB restaurant can make the overall dining experience just a little more comfortable.
Many of us are aware of the intimidating feeling that arises when surfing through the shelves and shelves of wine labels in the store, trying to decipher the good from the not-so-good. To help you navigate your way through the confusing world of wine labels, we have teamed up with La QV to create the ultimate cheat-sheet for what wine to bring to a BYOB restaurant.
