Conseil des vins d'appelation du Québec

The CVAQ: your passport to knowing the certified wines of Quebec’s terroir

The Quebec Appellation Wines Council (CVAQ) oversees the protection, supervision and supervision of the PGI Vin du Québec and PGI Vin de glace du Quebec appellations. In this sense, the organization represents all Quebec winegrowers whose wines respect all stages of production, from harvest to bottle

Role of the CVAQ

The CVAQ ensures that the specifications are maintained and updated. He supervises the recognition and approval procedures for PGI wines. He is responsible for delivering training and managing the approval committee during the organoleptic examination or the approval tasting that will allow the wines to be marketed. It also provides support to winegrowers in their PGI designation procedures.

The CVAQ works with important partners, including the Council of Reserved Appellations and Enhancing Terms (CARTV), ECOCERT CANADA the certification organization and the Conseil des vins du Québec.
