THE WINE COUNCIL OF QUEBEC, A HISTORY OF PASSION
The Wine Council of Quebec (Conseil des vins du Québec, CVQ) is an inter-professional association open to vintners of all sizes and levels of experience, as well as all other stakeholders in the Quebec wine and grape industry. We are committed to being an advocate for key issues related to marketing, vintner prosperity, scientific development, knowledge sharing and other areas to help the sector grow and flourish.
Our association was founded in October 1987 by a group of winegrowers looking to work together to develop Quebec’s nascent wine industry. Quebec wines are a reflection of our land, our people and our heritage. Passion, expertise and authenticity go into every single drop.
Today, the Wine Council of Quebec comprises over 80 members, including some 60 winegrowers offering diverse productions, as well as some 20 inter-professional members. Individually and collectively, they strive to expand and promote the art and craft of winemaking in Quebec, which continues to improve with each successive vintage.
Elevating Quebec viticulture to the highest possible summits of quality, refining winemakers’ expertise to help them extract the best from our land, and bottling authentic and innovative wines is the mission that association members carry out with passion and pride. Their small-scale production means Quebec winegrowers bottle every vintage with our own brand of charm and character.
