It’s pretty crazy to think that it’s ‘illegal’ to order wine from a Canadian winery and have it shipped to your home. But it’s an actual fact – most provinces in Canada simply don’t allow this. These laws date back to the prohibition period, and are in place to date even though this is a 6.8 billion dollar industry in Canada.
But things are changing in Nova Scotia…
A recent change in the law has opened Nova Scotia to direct shipping. Effective immediately, Nova Scotia residents of legal drinking age may now purchase 100% Canadian wine directly from a licensed out-of-province winery and have it shipped to their homes for personal consumption.
