Commentaires : Decanters such as these were given out by the London Winery as a promotion, most likely to retailers and distributors, in an effort to augment sales of their wines. A.N. Knowles, the founder of the company, did not really believe that Canadians were wine drinkers, and he said that instead, "Canadians are hard-drinking and hard-living and hard-fighting." Regardless, the winery was founded in 1925, during a time when the Liquor Control Board did not allow the retailing of wine. In 1927 these laws changed, and the London Winery began selling their products in pharmacies--their products being mead (honey wine), as they did not think they could compete with the table wines from Italy and France. In the late 70s they began making table wines in earnest, and by 1984 they had 20 wine shops across Ontario. They were later sold to Vincor International, and London Winery products are no longer available. This decanter was owned by Beth Waugh Quigley and Ken Quigley.
Fonctions : Decanter used for wine making, when separating the sediment from the actual wine. Wine would be served from it.
