Although many people do not know about the wine road in Quebec it is an absolute must of tourists. Along the road, you’ll find many vineyards and amazing scenery. Special events and festivals are held throughout the year that you should definitely plan for.
Along the Wine Road, there are many events that are held on a calendar basis. In late June, it is possible to enjoy the Open House event. This is a time of the year, when seventeen vineyards open themselves up to visitors. All visitors to these vineyards will receive a free glass of wine and local produced cheese. This is an excellent opportunity to sit down and have a nice picnic with the love of your life. The Harvest Festival, which is generally held at the end of August or the beginning of September, is another excellent and fun event. During this event, you’ll be able to sample products and participate in the harvesting and crushing of grapes to be used in the wine. Be sure to take these events into consideration, when planning your vacation.
Marked Wine Route
The Brome-Missisquoi’s Wine-Route is the largest cluster of vineyards in Quebec. Together these vineyards are responsible for more than half of Quebec’s wine production. Along this marked road, you’ll find over twenty individual vineyards. Each is more than willing to offer visitors a taste of their products, while sharing their love of wine. Although it is possible to travel the route in a vehicle, you can also rent a bicycle and bike throughout your journey. It is very important to plan your vacation according to the weather. Always check the local weather, before securing your dates.
The Unmarked Route
The La Route des Vins de l’Estrie is an unmarked wine route in Quebec that is located right outside of the city. Although it is relatively close to city life, you’ll get a sense of the countryside along this route. This specific route is home to seven different vineyards. The workers at each vineyard are happy and friendly. Don’t hesitate to stop for a glass of wine or a chat. This is similar to the path above. Although it is possible to travel the road on a bike, you can also drive from vineyard to vineyard to get where you’re going faster. The unmarked route might have fewer vineyards, but the scenery is to die for. Many swear that is looks like something out of a classic landscape painting from an old master.
