I had occasion to inquire about Canadian laws. I was told as follows:
The feds don't care because it's a Province thing. Each Province's
rules vary a little, thus the "U-Brew it" shops are OK in some places
and not in others. In Alberta, the transportation of [homemade] wine
is OK providing it's for personal use and not for commercial purposes.
That is where the line is drawn. "U-Brew Its" not allowed.
One of the wine supply places has even received permission to sell
small stills. Small being the operative word. [makes about a glass
full of Grappa-like liquor out of your home-made wine.
