Feds invest $160,000 to market Canadian wines
Canada's wine producers will receive a marketing boost thanks to a $160,000 investment announced Thursday by Delta-Richmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay.
Findlay made the announcement on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz at Lulu Island Winery, which she described as a "wonderful winery and a great example of the latest technologies in creating high quality premium wines."
The investment of up to $160,000 will support Canadian Vintners Association's international market development and trade efforts to increase the awareness of the value, quality and diversity of Canadian wines.
"This investment will help Canadian wine producers continue to deliver premium, high-quality wines to consumers abroad, putting money in the pockets of Canada's hard-working winemakers," Findlay said
