“BLOOM is an impartial organization that can be trusted: they are diligently working to address water and wastewater-related issues in Ontario’s wineries, and can be counted upon to approach your issues proactively and in earnest.”

“I wish this material was available sooner. If I had this information I could have saved a lot of time and money when we started monitoring water use.”

JL GrouxWinemaker, Stratus Vineyards

“Through member feedback, we realized that Ontario VQA wineries of all sizes experience similar water challenges. By partnering with BLOOM, our industry has been able to properly survey and classify water management issues across the province. BLOOM has also provided wineries a hands-on and practical guidance platform that can be trusted.”

Richard LinleyPresident, Wine Council of Ontario

“We want winemakers to be able to focus on what they do best. Water is a critical business issue – one that can’t be ignored – but there has never been a go-to source on water to meet the specific needs of a winery. This is why we created Water & Wine: to save wineries time, and money, while ensuring that they can implement practical and sustainable water management practices.”

Kevin JonesCEO, BLOOM

“There are processes that can be put in place in order to make your job of being sustainable easier and I think that’s what BLOOM really has brought to the table: change is not something we should fear but something that is easily embraceable and that will be beneficial to us in the future.”

Jamie EvansWinemaker, Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery

“Seeing all these industry partners come together to really go towards the same goal which is improved water quality; it’s a win-win situation for everyone.”

Kelly JamiesonRestoration Project Lead, Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority

“What we’re doing with Water & Wine is really all about the environment and business. We hope that wineries and staff will be able to start to pick up some of these tools and understand the opportunity.”

“BLOOM is different because it acts as an unbiased facilitator – bringing together stakeholders with the specific intent of resolving an issue in a practical and accessible manner.”
