Whether you prefer white, red or rosé wine, you’ll definitely enjoy exploring the Wine Route (La Route des Vins).

This circuit lets you discover the bouquets, aromas and grands crus of the vineyards in the Eastern Townships (Cantons-de-l’Est). It’s an opportunity to stock your cellar for your own wine-tasting parties at home. A bit of bubbly? Definitely, at one of the vineyards and at the spa!

165 km

Explore this country route by car, motorcycle or bike. There’ll be opportunities to enjoy some of the fruits of the vine, but remember: moderation is the key. Cheers!

Day 1

Dunham and its economuseum: everything about wine

L’Orpailleur – Vine and wine economuseum

Add to my planner

UNION LIBRE cidre & vin

Add to my planner

Here they make fire cider! Wait, what? That’s right. Fire cider is produced by evaporation, similar to the process used to make maple syrup. It gives the cider a nice golden-amber colour and a taste that warms you from the inside.
