As Doug Ford uncorks a $1,000-a-ticket fundraiser at a Niagara winery, the teetotaller premier is facing sour grapes for promoting another winemaker who donated to the Progressive Conservatives.

Next week, Ford will host a reception at Beamsville's Redstone Winery. That event comes as the premier's enthusiasm for Pelee Island Winery in a Twitter video sparked a midsummer online storm Monday.

"Love it. Go out and buy a bottle of Pelee Island wine — it's great, it's coming to a convenience store close to you," Ford said Sunday with local Tory MPP Rick Nicholls (Chatham-Kent-Leamington).
