Where will our lady in red boots take us next?

  1. No replies ? Interesting.

    I really hate to see someone hanging out there. Maybe CH should have a counter for the number of moderator blocks on each thread. Give us some idea for the passion for each subject without breaking any of the rules.

    To answer your question, I pretty sure an increase in taxes is in the cards...

      If someone wants replies, maybe they should use a heading that has something to do with the subject, which was wine.

      1. re: estufarian

        The VQA section at the LCBO is rather large - you'd be surprised at how pitiful the local wine section is at the SAQ in Quebec. But I suppose they could get rid of Caramilk liquor to make way for more regional products ;).

        1. re: frogsteak

          But how many wines are produced in Quebec that would meet the standards (adjusted for location) of VQA?

          1. re: estufarian

            none since quebec is trying to create its own version of vqa

            1. re: frogsteak

              Then it's not surprising that its a 'pitiful selection' [Note: I did say "adjusted for location"].

        2. re: estufarian

          And more than just a link with no description about the content.

          1. re: estufarian

            Read again. Absorb.

            The subject is a misbegotten policy impacting and impeding Ontario producers and consumers.

            It was our vintners this time.

              OK It's about red boots!
              That's the subject line.

        3. I would welcome Ontario wine's to the farmer markets. I quite enjoy interacting with the craftsmen (craftswoman?) as I find their knowledge so helpful in choosing what product to try first from their brand. Monforte creamery was a true revelation to me when I got to eat and explore all of their cheeses at the farmers market. I'd love to have this same experience.
