Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) Ontario

VQA Ontario (Vintners Quality Alliance Ontario) is an organization that plays a vital role in the Ontario wine industry. As the regulatory authority for Ontario's wine appellations, VQA Ontario ensures that wines meet specific quality and production standards. Established in 1988, VQA Ontario is responsible for the classification and certification of Ontario wines.

VQA Ontario sets rigorous criteria to guarantee the authenticity, origin, and quality of Ontario wines. Wines labeled with the VQA symbol adhere to strict regulations regarding grape sourcing, winemaking practices, and regional designation. VQA Ontario's classification system includes designations such as VQA, VQA sub-appellations, and Niagara Peninsula, signifying the wine's origin and adherence to quality standards.

The VQA Ontario symbol on a bottle assures consumers of the wine's quality and authenticity, providing confidence in the product they are purchasing. The organization supports the growth and recognition of Ontario's wine industry, promotes regional diversity, and fosters consumer trust in the wines produced within the province.
