Marketing and Vineyard Improvement Program (MVIP)

May 6, 2015

Ontario's Marketing and Vineyard Improvement Program (MVIP) was created under the Wine and Grape Strategy to promote Ont​ario VQA wine and support vineyard production improvements.

MVIP provides grape grow​ers with up to 35 per cent cost-share for eligible vineyard improvements. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis within an established intake period. Once all annual funds are allocated, the intake will be closed and the remaining applications will be automatically entered into a priority queue for consideration for funding in the next program year.  ​Agricorp is delivering the vineyard improvement component of the MVIP program.
