Wine trivia

The FT had a nice piece last week-end about the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) which apparently is the world’s biggest single buyer of beverage alcohol and the biggest single buyer of French wine. The LCBO dates back to the abolition of prohibition in 1927 and whilst it still exercises monopolistic control, the wine stores it operates are nowadays indistinguishable from modern supermarket-style outlets.
