the cradle of winegrowing in Quebec, is the perfect destination to
escape the hustle and bustle of city life, enjoy fall colours and
take in the bucolic scenery on a road trip. And with an abundance of
local produce, the region is sure to please even the most discerning
palate. Whether you’re an outdoor lover or wine connoisseur, or if
you’re simply looking for a relaxing getaway, Brome-Missisquoi has
something for you.
Brome-Missisquoi invites you to explore its
famous Wine Route, dotted with over 20 vineyards putting on the
festivities during the harvest season, which runs from mid-September
to mid-October. It’s the perfect time to take a behind-the-scenes
look at the world of wine, by joining in the grape harvest, taking a
guided tour or attending a tasting session. With so much to see and
do, why not extend your stay with a range of packages
celebrating the Wine Route’s 20th anniversary ? These packages
include accommodations for one or two nights and, of course, the
opportunity to tour wineries and taste a wealth of products. Some
even have meals or a visit to the spa included!
Driving over mountains, across valleys and
through picturesque villages along the Wine Route is especially fun
during the fall! Share your love of wine with passionate winemakers
as you embark on a self-guided
itinerary that will take you from the Sutton mountains and
Brome Lake to the region’s prettiest country roads. And as you go
from one vineyard to the next, you’ll discover a wealth
of local flavours and attractions to suit all tastes.
From September 23 to October 15, get ready
for four weekends of activities during Bromont
at the farm. Taking place in the heart of Vieux-Bromont,
this festival celebrates local producers and their harvest with
music, nature workshops and a public market. Another event, the Mont
SUTTON Fall Festival, promises a feast for the eyes on weekends from September 16 to October 15. Take in the fall foliage and enjoy activities with the whole family such as zip-lining, chairlift rides, hiking and free outdoor musical performances. And in honour of the Wine Route’s 20th anniversary, a wine bar will be operated for both events. You won’t want to miss this!
