Quality Vines, Better Grapes
CGCN works to advance the Canadian grape and wine industry by ensuring a sustainable supply of high quality, certified propagative grapevine material.
The CGCN is a collaboration between the Grape Growers of Ontario, the British Columbia Wine Grape Council, l'Association des vignerons du Québec, and the Grape Growers Association of Nova Scotia.
One of the first orders of business for the CGCN is to establish an industry Certification Committee, who will recommend certification standards to the CGCN Board within the next year.
Our Certification Standards
Show grape growers your commitment to producing quality propagative grapevine materials with CGCN certification.
With CGCN Certification, you can proudly demonstrate to growers that your nursery is dedicated to providing sustainable domestic grapevine material of the highest quality, that has been vetted and tested free from virus.
