Jun 22 2021, 12:15 pm

It’s officially summertime in Montreal, which means you should have some vineyards and wine-tasting spots on your radar.

If you’re looking for local vineyards, the Eastern Townships is a great place to start. The Brome-Missiquoi wine route extends across 140 kilometres, consists of 20 wineries (including some of the oldest in Quebec) and is responsible for producing 60% of the province’s local wines.

Open from now until November, here are a handful of wine tasting (and cider) spots you should check out this summer.
