Recognized by the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ), the PGI Vin du Québec appellations have been put in place to protect the traceability, authenticity and specificity of the wine thus ensuring the quality for consumers.
The winemaker must comply with strict specifications, which stipulate in particular that all the raw material (the grapes!) Must come from Quebec. A committee must also validate the quality of the product, tasting it blind.
The PGI Vin du Québec can be lavished on white, rosé, red and sparkling wines as well as late harvest wines and raisined grape wines. The PGI Vin de Glace du Québec is essentially reserved for ice wines.
A certification that tastes so good … we would be crazy to do without!
