      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.

        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.

            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 ;).

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

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

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

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

                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.
