Grape Growers of Ontario

Wine Grape Replant Program

Wine Grape Replant Program
$50,000 - February 22, 2007

The replant strategy converts up to 25% of total acreage from juice grape production to wine grapes, which typically experience higher market demand.

Representing over 600 grape growers in eastern, southern and southwestern Ontario, the Grape Growers of Ontario provides resources and support to maintain a healthy market for grape growers.Farmers in Niagara face an uncertain future after a local company announced an end to manufacturing grape juice. Many of these farmers want to transition to growing new products, including high quality wine grape varieties that would elevate Niagara’s reputation as a world renowned wine region. This project invests in that goal.
