Government of Canada states: if the content of alcohol is more than 1.1% in a drink then it is regarded as wine. The provinces of Canada are responsible for the wine selling and therefore the other wine sale and purchase are regarded as illegal.

According to the new rules which are implemented, Alberta is the only province that has allowed to open private liquor shops. Here are some popular wine festivals, for all the wine-lovers:
