The Brome-Missisquoi region within the Eastern Townships, south of the St. Lawrence River, is home to more than 20 wineries responsible for producing more than half of the wine in Quebec and includes two of the province’s oldest vineyards. The wine route here yields almost 150 kilometres of beyond-pleasant scenery and more than 20 restaurants, with cycling routes to boot. The cold-climate viticulture delivers some very interesting tastes, and the area creates many goodies to fill your picnic basket with too. Meet the field-to-bottle families, quiz the winemakers and hear stories that are as unique as the terroir itself.
