The Ontario Wine and Grape Strategy was renewed by the Ontario Government for five years commencing in 2015/16.
In support of the strategy, VQA Ontario was asked to develop and implement the first annual Ontario Wine and Grape Industry Performance Study. The survey and report were developed by VQA Ontario and Deloitte in consultation with representatives of the wine and grape industry and the Government of Ontario.
The study is aimed at providing benchmarking and performance data to support the reporting commitments of the Wine and Grape Strategy and to improve the industry’s access to sector performance information.
The first wave of the study collected comprehensive information from 106 wineries and 42 non-winery grape growers. The report provides an overview of the financial state of the industry, including the impact of tourism and hospitality.
