Blue Gypsy Wines, a family owned and operated winery in Oxford Mills, is the latest eastern Ontario winery to become an approved supplier to the LCBO.
"This is a huge victory for us and for small wineries in general," said owner Louis Gaal. "We have been vocal advocates for the small producers and this achievement should serve as an inspiration to others to make the effort and gain a foothold in the market."
Blue Gypsy's cranberry wine will be available in some Ottawa area LCBO stores this spring or early summer. It is the first fruit wine in eastern Ontario to be sold by the LCBO. Blue Gypsy Wines, located at 1595 Lindsay Road, offers hand-crafted fruit wines and fruit wine vinegars without added sulfites.
Blue Gypsy opened for the season on May 15. Learn more about this Leeds Grenville winery and its special events by visiting their website.
