We signed up for a number of winery & cider tours during our time in Quebec, Canada. We visited two regions, Pontiac approximately an hour NW of Ottawa and Ile d’ Orleans about a 40 minutes drive from Quebec City.
The apple cider houses and vineyards are amazing and definitely worth a visit!
Quebec wineries are newer compared o wineries in Ontario and British Columbia.
Quebecers enjoy wines on the acidic sided compared to wines elsewhere in Canada.
We met many owners at each location. It was a pleasure to see how passionate the owners were when describing their craft, products and location.
The Vignoble Les Collines Winery (Facebook) located near Luskville in the Pontiac Municipality. We sampled three wines during our visit. We also toured the grounds and vines with the owner who was friendly and informative. The bonus, the winery also offers an incredible view of the Gatineau Park Eardley Escarpment.
