Activists are urging Wegmans, which has 92 stores throughout the Northeast United States and sells about 237 different wines from 58 wineries, to remove Trump wines from shelves.

"Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop there," Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, told the Washington Post.

Wegmans currently sells five wines from the Trump Winery, a winery located in Virginia, which includes Trump Winery Meritage, Trump Blanc de Blanc, Trump Winery Chardonnay, Trump Winery Cru Fortified Chardonnay and Trump Winery Sauvignon Blanc

The Stop Trump Wine group has asked shoppers to boycott supermarkets, restaurants and other organizations doing business with Trump Winery.
