VQA Reporting Year
VQA Ontario reports statistics based on its corporate year of April 1 to March 31. The year referenced is the year in which the period ends. For example, VQA reporting year 2017 is the 12-month period ending March 31, 2017. Wine data such as volume or number of wines is based on the wines that were evaluated and approved during the reporting period – the reporting year is never equivalent to the vintage date.
