Ontario to allow wines sales at Farmer Markets

Plans are afoot to loosen Ontario’s rigid liquor laws. Let’s not get too excited though, these are just baby steps. The government has announced a new $75-million wine strategy.

Premier Wynne said a wine secretariat will be created to boost the province’s industry. And she will also loosen Ontario’s rigid liquor laws to allow the sale of Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) wines, which are made from Ontario-grown grapes, at farmers markets “in a socially responsible way.”
