It’s no surprise that Canada is home to some of the best vineyards in North America. From Quebec’s Eastern Townships to Niagara region and British Columbia. The local talents of Canadian wineries should never be over-looked.
Our rich soil and favourable weather conditions translates into a tasty variety of grapes, which in turn produce even tastier wines. Whether you prefer red, white or a seasonal rosé, the options to visit Canadian and Quebec wineries are plentiful.
Quebec Wineries with Kava Tours
Recently, we explored three Quebec wineries in the Eastern Townships with Kava Tours. The benefits of visiting wineries with a tour bus means you can enjoy the beautiful scenery en route without the hassle of driving. The bonus of having a tour guide adds value to this educational and enriching over-all experience.
From the lovely rosé at Pigeon Hill, to the fun and educational mixology course at Val Caudalies, we would recommend this trip to wine lovers and curious minds alike. Awaken your taste buds to the delicious local wines of Quebec, learn how make drinks with local products, and enjoy apple cider wine in the great outdoors.
Our summers are too short, so you don’t want to miss this.
