Us at 20

In the past two decades, CCOVI has transformed from a single science lab that was born out of the partnership between Brock University, the Grape Growers of Ontario and the Wine Council of Ontario in 1996, into an internationally-recognized centre of experts whose work priorities are determined by the grape and wine industry’s most pressing needs.

CCOVI celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016, which provided the opportunity to reflect on past successes and look forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the years to come.


With 20 years of research and outreach activities to celebrate, we put together a commemorative e-book to mark the occasion. Take a look at where we’ve been and where we’re going.
