The Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) Wine Support Program supports Ontario wineries in increasing competitiveness and innovation while growing the sale of Ontario VQA wines at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO). The Program provides grants to help wineries invest in growing their VQA wine business, including export and tourism development activities.
Grant applications for the 2017 funding year will be accepted from eligible wineries during the intake period of April 28 to May 23, 2017. At the beginning of the intake period, Agricorp will send applications to eligible wineries along with their VQA table wine sales data. Applications must be submitted to Agricorp before the end of the intake period.
New for 2017
To make it easier to participate, the application is now shorter and simpler. There is also no longer a requirement to report project expenditures or submit receipts.
