River Street Wines
Several of Canada's great family fortunes had their roots in a distillery industry made prosperous during U.S. prohibition. This infamous chapter in the history of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, has now become a high profile tourist attraction. The city earned the nickname "Little Chicago" because of its River Street neighbourhood. The area's most prominent import, the owner of several local businesses, was Chicago mobster Al Capone.
Speakeasies and entertainment offerings flourished along River Street, many of them owned by Capone and associates. This wine applauds the energy and creativity of today's Moose Jaw investors and leaders who have made a fascinating anecdote of Canadian history a significant tourist attraction.
