GOSH: Fruit Wines at Farmers Markets

The constant drama, bad judgment, poor choices and self-delusion of the Ontario government's dithering with our wine industry has led to a death spiral and a wine catastrophe of epic proportions in This Have-Not Province.


Here's the latest threat --


ALL Ontario fruit wineries will NOW be allowed to market their wines at Farmers' Markets this Spring 2009, so long as the wines pass a panel of expert grapewine tasters. The point spread must be at least 13 out of 20.


There will be NO limit on how much wine can be sold in this manner, and there will be no restrictions on where the fruit comes from – or even who makes it.


According to one source, the larger grape wineries are poised to swoop in with some "Cellared in China" apple wine product. And that is just the beginning...My sources tell me MANGO wine (from Ontario mangoes) is next up -- just perfect for summer around the poolside.


Shudder, shudder…more on how this plays out later...
