Here are some activity suggestions that will transform your Route des Vins getaway into a unique experience
Picnicking Amid The Vines
Often underestimated, picnicking is the perfect country outing to take advantage of beautiful landscapes and the fine weather. You will be happy to learn that most of Brome-Missiquoi’s vineyards have set up picnic tables on their sites. The only thing left for you to do is stop at one of our local agritourism enterprises to fill your baskets and add a locally produced wine to complete your tasty meal.
You can’t find the time to build your own feast? No problem! Many local enterprises such as the Gagliano Vineyard, the Rumeur Afffamée in Dunham, La Mie Bretonne bakery as well as Les Sucreries de l’Érable offer complete baskets upon reservation.
For an exceptional view, head towards the giant monarch butterfly at the Domaine des Côtes d’Ardoise.
Walking Through the Vines
In Dunham, the Caudalie Vinyeard proposes 5 kilometres of trails where you can admire the magnificent Green Mountains as well as Mount Pinacle! For a unique experience, come during the Spring when all the apple trees are in full bloom, or later on when the grapevines have ripened.
