Well ok but $1.05 per litre is still cheaper than rot gut wine was in the 70s. Gotta look for the positives in life ... lol

That’s cheaper than a Bottle of Old Sailor cost at the LCBO circa 1974.
Here's an Old Sailor wine story for you. Circa 1968, our teen band was putting on chaperoned dances for the teens in town at the old Orange Hall in Port Hope. They were well attended by the local teens and of course, no drinking was allowed. We made about $15 each for playing for the night. Many years later, I find out from our friend Sam that he had gotten an older friend of his to buy him a case of Old Sailor and he sold it at the door when the older teens where paying their admission, He kept the case under the table with a tablecloth on it. We never knew a thing. The bugger made more money than we did. I think the Old Sailor was $12 for a case of 12 if I'm not mistaken. Now there's a entrepreneur for you. Oh ya, In-A-Gadda-da-Vida was our closing song. Great time to be a kid.

I'm old enough to remember Cdn Wine for under $.90 a bottle
And back then they had a winter grade wine with anti-freeze in it but, like sales of domestic sedans from the big three, side road tours ain't what they were so they don't seem to be doing that anymore.
