Help a grapegrower this weekend - Buy Local!
The fight against the LCBO's practice of selling "Cellared in Canada" wines continues. Over the course of the long weekend, consumers are being urged to only buy wines that carry the VQA symbol, ensuring that local grapegrowers and winemakers get the support they deserve. Better yet, if you're anywhere near wine country over the weekend, stop by and pick up a few bottles directly from the makers themselves. Support your local growers and say NO to Cellared in Canada!
