Interview with Debbie Zimmerman, Grape Growers of Ontario - The Economic Spin-Off of Buying Local Wine

I think that the concept of buying local is probably not new to most people but the fact of the matter is, what we find for every bottle of wine produced in Ontario, $11 of economic spin-off comes from that purchase. For every bottle of imported wine sold in Ontario there is 68 cents, so why wouldn't you buy local, especially when it is of such tremendous quality? In fact our wines win awards all around the world.
