Wine Country Ontario invites consumers to experience and learn why 100% locally grown Vintner’s Quality Alliance (VQA) wines taste better. Wine Country Ontario is dedicated to promoting Ontario’s wine-growing regions – Niagara Peninsula, Prince Edward County and Lake Erie North Shore. It is also an expression of the entirety of the Ontario wine-country experience: how the wine tastes, where it’s made, how it marries with local food, and how it reflects the overall lifestyle of each region.
Vintners Quality Alliance - VQA
VQA Ontario is Ontario’s Wine Authority, a regulatory agency responsible for maintaining the integrity of local wine appellations and enforcing winemaking and labelling standards. VQA Ontario does not represent the wine industry in Ontario and is not a marketing agency. www.vqaontario.ca
