Despite the relative successes of the "Free My Grapes" movement - a consumers' rights organization that was spearheaded by frustrated wine fan Shirley-Ann George a little over five years ago and works to remove barriers to inter-provincial wine trade - we still can't find much Okanagan wine in Ontario (George's particular grievance) nor expressions from Niagara in British Columbia.
