Police seize altar wine in Quebec, say it's illegal to import it

April 26, 2021

The altar wine comes from two Californian producers: Mont La Salle Altar Wines and Cribari Premium Altar Wines. However, since the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ) - the provincial liquor board - does not sell these products, the wines had to be imported from other Canadian provinces. Although that was the practice for many years, police now says it's illegal.
