The Grape Growers of Ontario represents over 500 active growers on 17,000 acres in three viticulture areas (Niagara Peninsula, Lake Erie North Shore, and Prince Edward County). We are the advocate of all processing grape growers in the province working to ensure the market for Ontario grapes and wines expands domestically and internationally.
The Wine Council of Ontario (WCO) is the champion of Ontario’s high quality, authentically local Vintner’s Quality Alliance (VQA) wines and of promoting wine country as a destination.
As a non-profit trade association, WCO represents 70-plus wineries from across the designated viticulture areas of the province: Niagara, Prince Edward County, Lake Erie North Shore and Pelee Island.
Our members are grape growers, manufacturers and leaders in tourism in their communities. We are the future of Ontario’s wine industry, which is a source of new investment, jobs and award-winning wines.
The Winery & Grower Alliance of Ontario is the provinces leading industry association and a member of the Canadian Vintners Association. WGAO members produce over 85% of all the wine in Ontario and represent 89% of all exports made by the Ontario industry.
