FedEx notified BC wineries earlier this week that it has stopped accepting interprovincial direct to consumer shipments of wine other than to destinations within BC or Manitoba. It is unclear whether this development is related to earlier reports of FedEx being charged in Newfoundland for shipping wine into that province (see: FedEx Charged in Nfld for Shipping Wine). In addition, media reports today have indicated that a deal may be close that would allow the interprovincial shipment of wine between Ontario and British Columbia: see Wynne, Clark Announce Ontario BC Wine Deal is Near. More details will be posted as they become available.
