In-Store Winery Legalities

There are several Provincial laws by which we must abide when operating in-store wineries. For instance, store owner or staff are not permitted to bottle wine on a customer’s behalf. Wine will be set aside until the customer can come in and bottle it personally.

Several basic Provincial laws we must all abide by:

  • Winemakers must be of legal drinking age to use in-store winery services.
  • Wine sampling prior to purchase is not permitted, and sampling of final product is never permitted.
  • Wine sampling prior to bottling (the day of) is limited to 200ml (six ounces) per batch by the winemaker whose name appears on the contract.
  • Winemaker’s assistants must be of legal drinking age.
  • Exchanging wines on–site with other winemakers is not permitted.
