The practice of “Bring Your Own Wine” (BYO) exists in many countries under the name of “Bring Your Own Bottle” (BYOB). This practice – also commonly referred to as bring your own wine – exists in many countries, and started in Quebec in the 1980s. A few merchants realized that there was a legal vacuum and they decided to allow customers to bring their own wine into their establishments. This resulted in a quick reinvigoration of their restaurants that greatly helped to increase their popularity. Today, bring your own wine is not what it used to be; they have evolved to the effervescent rhythm of the South Shore’s restaurant scene! You can now eat very well while bringing your own wine – hence this list of the best bring your own wine restaurants on the South Shore. Perfect for smaller budgets or just for the pleasure of drinking your favourite wine with a delicious restaurant meal, bring your own wine is a hit!
