Whoa! dfar you are really showing your ignorance now!!
Next time you wander through your local wine store, look at all the labels and see how many NYState wines there are..you might actually learn something, which from the way you have responded so far, you can use it.

someone asked if wine was made in Canada up higher in this string. Yes in fact there is some very good wine made in the wine region around Niagra-on-the-Lake and that area. Very nice reislings, excellent ice wines. Some very nice wineries to visit and sample along the route from Toronto to Niagra Falls. One especially good wine from this region, that has had great reviews, and is known world wide, is Inniskillin

LONG ISLAND WINE COUNTRY

You don’t have to be an oenophile to be enthralled by Long Island’s wineries. Only rivaled by California’s wine country, Long Island’s wine industry has grown from one small vineyard to nearly 3,000 acres of vines and over two dozen wineries producing world-class wines.
The praise and awards continue to accumulate, and Long Island wines just keep getting better. There are three excellent wineries in the Hamptons (don’t miss Wölffer Estate in Sagaponak – take home their Pinot Noir and the Cuvee Sparkling Wine Brut), but for the full experience take a day trip to the North Fork.
From East Hampton take Route 114 North through Sag Harbor (a quaint old whaling village) to North Haven (look for herds of fearless deer strolling through front yards). Follow Route 25 West through pristine farmland, past farm stands piled high with local produce, and mile after mile of stunning vineyards. There are now over 20 wineries to choose from on the North Fork but don’t miss Pindar (if the good Doctor is leading a Champagne tour you are in luck, but in any case, try out their Mythology – if you can get it - and the Cabernet Port) and Lenz (their Pinot Noir, Champagne and Chardonnays consistently win blind tastings over the top French wines costing easily 10 times as much).

Oh really, LI wines are rivalled only by California! Did anybody tell Washington and Oregon. by the way, we only got back from Mmontreal three weeks ago, and looked all over the city for a bring your own place, and came up empty.I think all this talk about good restaurants where you can pour your own is just that. I haven't seen anybody list one name.We though the restuarant scene was very overstatedby people on here who I guess havent' actually been there and tryed out their choices.

OK then smartypant, name a few byobs that get good food ratings in the Zagat magazines. We looked, asked the concerge in the hotel acrioss the alley, tried operators information, and nada, nothing. The stuff we bought we brought back and got charged by the customs people of canada when we crossed to the US to drive back to new your city. We are stuck in midtown, in a real mood too, the streets are a mess and it looks like it's never going to stop.

gina-all that searching and asking that you did, should have brought you to this area in Montreal, if in fact, you were there._______________
From Visite` Montreal
"Each neighbourhood has its specialty and favourite eating spot. Especially popular are the bring-your-own-wine restaurants in and around Prince-Arthur Street and the Square Saint-Louis. You'll find liquor stores with a very fine selection of wines on virtually every street, and if you feel like springing for a more memorable bottle, you're sure to find it at the Signature boutique, a very select liquor store, at Cours Mont-Royal."

No, smartypants, look again, and name one good highly rated place to eat where I could have taken my own beverages. It is so easy. Don't tell us where liquor stores are, for goodness sake I told you already we bought it and had to pay duty on it because we didnt drink it in Canada. I think youre the one who hasnt been there, so get off mapquest.aol and name a byob restaurant you know pwersonally. Anybody want to help out smarty? He is having a time. We are just two women here in midtown, plannign on going bck to Ottawa sometime, and interetsed in byobs, like in Montreal.

Gina what the hell is the matter with you anyway? Your attitude is pretty sour. In fact, the people of Canada will be much better off if you never come back. God girl you have a major problem eh?

Gina, if you are looking for a BYOB in Ottawa, unfortunately you wont find one here. The Ontario liquor laws dont allow it. You would have to cross the river in Gatineau, although they are not as prevalent as in Montreal. I believe there is a chain type place, I'm sure thats not what you are looking for, and I cant comment on it as I have never been. I know Montreal has many more BYOBs than Gatineau.

Gina and others - I have been to many, many BYOB's in Montreal. None of them are 'white tablecloth' upscale, $50 a plate places, but most of them are very good, and lot's of fun. My favorite is Le Jardin des Panos on Duluth, which can be magical on a balmy summer evening out on the terrace under the huge maple trees. Everyone brings their own wines or beers.The food is fairly simple Greek fare but very good indeed, and it's hard not to have a great evening there.
Just fyi - there is actually a book 'the best BYOBs in Montreal'
Now - let's put this topic to bed!

Gina, I was genuinely trying to help you out when you mentioned you were coming to Ottawa. But I take back my attempt at an nicety, you are an arrogant jerk and I am sooo glad you will stay the heck out of my area. Keep your sorry behind wherever it is you come from. And good ridance to you!

PS after reviewing your previous posts, let me make a few more comments. You say you talked to the concierge in the hotel across the alley????!!! And you called the operators information??? Did you think and operator for a phone company would have this type of info??? What kind of an idiot are you? I guess if a place doesnt have a big ugly Walmart or some such type sign in front of it, you cant find it! Idiot.

I think she's not here anymore, she said she's leaving. Perhaps you waited too long. She was extraordinarily patient with you. Gina is a case, I agree, but she also tried. Good riddance, and I hope she never comes back.

I don't know about gina trying anything very hard, but she certainly IS trying!
Looking through my list of Montreal (not Ottowa) byob's, I found that Lombardies, Le Jardin de Panos and Bazou are very well liked and popular.
While MONTREAL is not in Zagats as of yet, I am sure if gina really wants to know the answer to her many, and I must say, belligerent questions, she could just go into Google and look it up.
But, of course, you can't write back and insult Google so I am sure she won't bother.
It never ceases to amaze me the way some people turn around a normal (to most) question and use it to attack people! As if ignorance is something to be proud of.
Oh well, Cheers!

LOL! Dagwood, you got that right!
She is an embarrassment. But then, surely we will be forgiven, I think there might be more of the nice people than not who visit Canada..I hope
