Wine Growers Ontario members are all sizes of wineries as well as commercial grape growers. WGO members are responsible for over 80% of all of the wine made in Ontario including Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), 100% Canadian and International-Domestic Blend (IDB). Our industry supports over 18,000 jobs in Ontario and contributes over $750 million in taxes and markups to the federal and Ontario government each year.

In July 2020, the federal government entered a negotiated settlement with Australia and committed to repeal the longstanding excise duty exemption on Canadian wines, and committed to introducing a trade legal winery program in Budget 2021 to support regional jobs and wine country tourism.
