Brome-Missisquoi is often referred to as the birthplace of viticulture in Québec, which is why it was only natural for the region to host this designated route, the first of its kind in the province.
Our ambition was to highlight the work and talent of local winemakers by promoting their products. Then, one thing led to another, and many businesses soon joined the wine route. Restaurants, microbreweries, distilleries, cider houses, farms, artisanal shops, accommodations… Today, more than a hundred “friends”, partner businesses, make up the rich ecosystem of this route, which has become an unmissable destination for sampling our terroir’s character and the know-how of our artisans.
Over the past 20 years, many vineyards have been added to the Route des Vins and this year 22 of them will be welcoming you to their wine cellars. Each of these vineyards is unique with its own colour, philosophy and vision; However, they all share a love of the craft, the terroir and, especially, they all truly believe that Brome-Missisquoi gathers all the ingredients to allow them to produce the most excellent wines!
Starting in June, you’re invited to participate in different activities, events, festivals and much more. Come enjoy the unique experience of Brome-Missisquoi and its Route des vins!

Be among the lucky ones who will taste a delicious beer brewed especially in honor of the 20th anniversary of La Route des Vins! This hybrid beverage, half wine, half beer, is the result of a collaboration between Brasserie Dunham and Vignoble Val Cauladies.
