Discover the 22 vineyards of the Brome-Missisquoi region, the cradle of wine-making in Quebec. Located within a 25-km (15-mi.) radius of one another, and less than a one-hour drive from Montreal, these vineyards are in full bloom and ready for the grape harvest. Don’t wait to plan your trip on the Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route. This part of the Eastern Townships is home to passionate wine makers and craftspeople – not to mention splendid landscapes of valleys and hills.


Bountiful vineyards

The Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route is a pleasure to discover by car or bicycle. Benefitting from an ideal grape-growing climate, this region is where you’ll find all sorts of vineyards, from pioneers like the Vignoble de l’Orpailleur, celebrating 35 years in the business, to newcomers like the Vignoble La Belle Alliance, open since July 17 of this year.

Take part in the harvest

From September 9 to October 1, 2017, Brome-Missisquoi will be in the mood for a party with the harvest season in full swing. There’s no better time to visit the Wine Route, and the vineyards will be hosting a bunch of activities!

Have a picnic among the grapes

Tastings of wine, cider and microbrews are a must, but there’s a lot more to do when you visit the Wine Route. Stock up on one-of-a-kind products, have a picnic in one of the vineyards and admire the beautiful surroundings. Most of them provide picnic tables for you to use. While you’re there, you’re sure to learn a thing or two about grape-growing and wine-making!
