Why become a member of the CVQ?

The CVQ is an interprofessional association open to all Quebec winegrowers, as well as to the various partners of the Quebec wine industry.

Our role

Defend the interests of winegrowers and ensure the development of our sector by advancing issues relating, among other things, to the prosperity of producers, marketing, distribution, as well as the development of research and knowledge. How do we achieve that? By demonstrating the reality and needs of winegrowers to government, regulatory and commercial authorities.

Our members

Winemakers from all over Quebec; the smallest as well as the largest, beginners as well as the most experienced.
The CVQ is also made up of several partners (interprofessional members) who are committed to the development of Quebec’s vineyards.
