Wine Growers Canada and our partners are working to raise industry awareness to ensure that all eligible wineries do not miss the application deadline. Please excuse this e-mail if you have already applied for the program, we encourage all wineries to talk to your winery neighbours and fellow winemakers to ensure everyone is aware of this new program and the application deadlines.
Only those wineries who submit an application prior to the August 12, 2022 deadline will be eligible for funding. Applications received after the August 12 deadline will NOT QUALIFY for funding.
All licensed wineries in Canada that produce or contract out the production of bulk wine from primary agricultural products, such as grapes, berries, other fruit, dandelions, rice and sap, will be eligible for support under the program.
Wine Growers Canada hosted a webinar on July 4, 2022 providing important information on the program including application process, timelines and eligibility criteria. The webinar was recorded and linked below with other important resources to help with the application process.
