B.C uncorks rules to allow local wine in supermarkets

Grocery stores will bid against each other to be considered for a licence

Grocery stores hoping to sell British Columbia’s wines, ciders and sake will have to bid against each other for the chance to apply for a licence.

The province has released details of the next step in moving some sales of 100% B.C. wines onto designated shelves in specific supermarkets.

The right to apply for a licence to sell the alcohol will be auctioned off through BC Auction, with the first round in late April.

Only grocery stores that meet strict criteria will be eligible to bid, and they’ll have to go through a registration and pre-screening process before paying a $25,000 deposit for every licence they are seeking.

The process is the second part of B.C.’s proposed revision of liquor sales involving VQA–or Vintners Quality Alliance–wineries.

It adds to the store-within-a-store model, where private liquor licences are transferred into a grocery store, which can then operate a stand-alone liquor store within its premises.
