Wines from specified areas (three designated areas in Ontario and four in British Columbia) are labelled VQA (Vintners' Quality Alliance, Canada). Wines must be made from classic grape varieties or preferred hybrids, and the wine must contain at least 85% of the variety named on the label. Wines described as estate-bottled must be made only from grapes owned or controlled by the winery; if a particular vineyard designation is used, the site must be within a recognized viticultural area and all the grapes must come from the designated vineyard. Ice wine (see eiswein) made from grapes that have frozen on the vine, very sweet.
