Join the grape harvest: a unique experience to enjoy

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!

Go winery-hopping: fine wines, interesting encounters and so much more!

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.

Celebrate the fall: foliage and local food in the spotlight

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!
