I don’t see what would be wrong you putting your own little label on a bottle, but I don’t  think you should remove the official name of the wine and where it comes from. Othewise everybody is going to start asking you question about the wine like did you make this wine, when did you make this wine, i didn’t know you made wine,etc. etc.

Darling Husband says he doesn’t BELIEVE it would be illegal, but what the law does state is that places that have liquor licenses are not allowed to serve homemade liquor in Alberta. What you’re planning on doing could easily be construed as doing that at the time. You’d better speak to someone at the liquor board. Their definition of homemade could include rebottling wine regardless of where it came from.

The more important thing to consider is that rebottling the wine is not recommended. When are you going to do it, days in advance? That would ruin the wine.

I think there’s a number or something like that needed for wine sales.  You might need to have that on your labels.

I found this on a site about bring your own wine:

Only commercially-manufactured wine will be permitted to be brought into licensed premises by customers. Bottles must be fully corked and sealed by the manufacturer. No homemade wine will be permitted.

It looks like rebottling it might not be allowed.
