Toronto grocery stores will start to sell wine in October

Get ready because you'll soon be able to buy wine, along with beer, cider and all of your other groceries in Ontario. That's right, the province is bringing both domestic and internationally produced wine to up to 70 grocery stores on October 28, 2016 and announced its list of retailers today. It includes both massive and smaller, independent chains.

Many Ontario supermarkets already have in-store wine boutiques, and starting this fall, up to 70 of these will be able to expand their offerings and share the regular checkout counters.

Eventually, 300 supermarkets across the province will be licensed to sell wine. However, like with the introduction of beer at grocery stores, the roll out will start slowly.

Here's the list of retailers licensed to sell wine. There's no word on store locations just yet.

  • Canex Canadian Forces Exchange System
  • Coppa's Fresh Market
  • Farm Boy 2012 Inc.
  • Fresh Market Foods
  • Highland Farms Inc.
  • Loblaws Inc.
  • Longo Brothers Fruit Markets Inc.
  • Metro Ontario Inc.
  • Sobeys Capital Inc.
  • Starsky's Fine Foods Hamilton Inc.
  • Uxbridge Foods Inc.
  • Wal-mart Canada Corp.
  • Yummy Market Inc.
