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.
- Wine sampling prior to bottling (the day of) is limited to 150ml (five ounces) per batch by the winemaker whose name appears on the contract.
