Load up on flavour, discover Christmas markets and go on a winter road trip in this famous wine-making region! A wonderful variety of activities is offered to you in Brome-Missisquoi.
On December 3 and 4, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., celebrations in a heart-warming atmosphere will abound in the vineyards of the Brome-Missisquoi region. A dozen of them will be decked out in style and opening their doors for the second edition of the Holiday Special on the Wine Route.
Participating vineyards will be presenting various festive activities, such as guided winter visits, meal pairings, tastings with commentary as well as gift basket suggestions. The Holiday Special is not only the perfect opportunity to visit some vineyards for the last time before next spring, but also a chance to discover what sets Quebec’s vineyards apart: the winter season itself! Stock up on presents and local wines that will enhance your holiday meals!
For a one-of-a-kind magical atmosphere, you won’t want to miss the Brome-Missisquoi Christmas markets. Each of the seven markets has a distinctive character and something for children or adults: shows and a wine bar in Bromont, a magnificent location in Cowansville, eco-friendly local finds in Dunham, a bonfire and choir in Farnham or good food and the art of table-setting in Frelighsburg. In Lac-Brome, roads are lit up and full of life to delight visitors, while in Sutton, crafts by local artisans inspire a thousand and one gift ideas!
Brome-Missisquoi suggests various itineraries showcasing amazing panoramas, places to stop for delicious foods and lots of fun activities. Head out on your own or with friends for some hiking or snowshoeing, or bring the family to see adorable alpacas or go downhill skiing. Looking for some alone time with your significant other instead? Choose a day of cross-country skiing followed by some spa-going and a romantic dinner!
