The Wine Council of Ontario’s (WCO) role is to promote Ontario VQA wines and vintners, support the production of excellent local wines that are valued both at home and abroad, and build on the substantial economic benefits that the VQA wine industry brings to the province.

The WCO currently represents over 100 winery properties across the province of Ontario. We represent wineries located in Niagara, Prince Edward County, Lake Erie North Shore – including Pelee Island and emerging wine producing regions such as Ontario’s South Coast and Georgian Bay/Grey County.
