Things to Consider

• Currently, the only 2 provinces that allow custom made wine to be served (not sold) at weddings, with a Special Occasion Permit, are British Colombia and Ontario. However, custom made wine can be used in any province as wedding favours and can also be served at home in any province for an engagement party, rehearsal dinner, gift opening or any other gathering before or after the wedding.

• In order to serve custom made wine at your wedding in BC or Ontario, you will need to obtain a Special Occasion Permit prior to the event. Talk to your provincial Alcohol/Liquor & Gaming Authority for more information. Your winemaking retailer can also guide you in this process.

• Always check with your reception venue. They may have certain rules and regulations regarding serving custom made wine at their establishment.
