Canada’s LCBO to introduce weight limits on bottles

A scale

According to a report in Decanter the Canadian province of Ontario will introduce an upper limit for how much an empty bottle of wine may weigh. Decanter refers to a letter written by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) that specifies an upper weight limit for bottles of 420 grams for wines retailing at CAD $ 15 or less.

More expensive wines will not have a strict upper limit but lighter bottles will be treated “favourably”. The decision is based on environmental considerations.

    The Canadian province is Ontario, not Ontaria

      Sorry for the spelling error (which it really was, even if it was in two places). Now corrected, as well as one more typo. 🙂
