Some countries have laws that stipulate the lowest price a bottle of wine can be sold for.

Answer: True.

Ireland, Scotland, and Canada all have laws that set a minimum price for wine, beer, and spirits. In Ireland, where new, higher minimum pricing was just enacted, a bottle of wine (with 12.5% alcohol or more) now must be sold for at least $8.40, a can of beer for $1.93, and a bottle of spirits for $23.52.
