Sour grapes?

Sales of homegrown wines by government-owned liquor stores seem to have hit a bit of a slump. In 2007, the liquor distribution branch's service plan committed to increasing sales of British Columbia Vintners Quality Alliance wines by 20 percent in fiscal 2006/07 - after having achieved a 18.5 percent increase in fiscal 2005/06. That performance measure was removed in this year's plan. But, following an inquiry by Public Eye, the branch has confirmed those sales increased by just 3.9 percent in fiscal 2006/07.
