PERUSE THE FIRST

winemaking REGION IN QUEBEC

THE STORY BEGINS IN 1980, when passionate— and admittedly, slightly crazy!—vintners Christian Barthomeuf and Jacques Breault traveled to Ontario to obtain cuttings to plant the first vineyard in the Eastern Townships. Just like that, Dunham’s Domaine des Côtes d’Ardoire was born.

A few years later, Dr. Jacques Papillion purchased the vineyard and exploited it for 30+ years while Christian Barthomeuf opened Clos Saragnat in Frelighsburg, where he would eventually develop the very first ice cider. 1982. Four more visionaries (Charles-Henri de Coussergues, Hervé Durand, Frank Furtado

and Pierre Rodrigue) work tirelessly to establish the region’s second vineyard, l’Orpailleur, right across the street from Domaine des Côtes d’Ardoise. From this lovely story was born two wine routes: The Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route in 2004 and the Estrie Wine Route in 2012.

Close to the Vermont border and nestled at the foot of Mount Pinnacle, Frelighsburg is recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec. The architectural quality and heritage aspects of several of the village’s buildings are remarkable. The Grammar School (1856); the general store, converted into a Café de Village; and the churches built on heights of land instill life into this village core. Apple growing adds colour to the countryside with its homemade production sites, cider houses, and orchards. Many top-quality artistic activities are held in this town. On Principale Street, stop by the Oneka organic farm based on the principles of permaculture and producing body care products. Boutique and Shopping

Located northeast of Lake Champlain on the banks of Missisquoi Bay, the hamlet of Philipsburg, one of Saint-Armand’s two sectors, was the first site in the region to have been settled (1784). The constructions dating from the 19th century, the rural setting, the covered bridge (1845) on Edoin Road, and the country roads leading to vineyards, far removed from contemporary turbulence, infuse an old-fashioned essence and charm into this village. A good way to discover these historical and heritage treasures is to visit the 12 stops along the Saint-Armand built heritage circuit. Vineyards

The village of Stanbridge East has succeeded in preserving its original Loyalist architecture. The presence of the Anglican Church (1860), the United Church (1844), and the neoclassical former school are tangible signs of its past. The Missisquoi Museum injects life into the milieu, presenting exhibitions in the Cornell Mill (1830) and Hodge’s General Store. The museum also welcomes visitors to the Walbridge Barn, an exceptional 12-sided, round barn, located in the charming hamlet of Mystic. This step back in time is a must for history enthusiasts where L’Oeuf, an artisanal chocolate shop, is also located. The annual apple pie festival, which is held in September, is as delicious an event as you’d hope. Museums and Interpretation Centres

The place name Ayer’s Cliff, adopted in 1904, reflects the site’s unique characteristic – the cliff towering over the southern shore of beautiful Lake Massawippi. It also commemorates Thomas Ayer, who introduced the railway in 1799. In the late 18th century, a small stagecoach inn welcomed travellers from the United States. Ayer’s Cliff has kept its Anglo-Saxon allure with its heritage homes, and fairgrounds where a public market is held Saturdays throughout the summer. In summer 2020, the Stanstead County Agricultural Society will hold the 175th edition of its fair – one of the oldest in the province.

Barnston-Ouest, characterized by its panoramic view from Mount Orford to Jay Peak, has, since 1946, included the villages of Way’s Mills and Kingscroft. A stop on the Townships Trail, the place name “Way’s Mills” evokes the memory of an American tweed and flannel manufacturer, L. S. Way, who arrived in the region circa 1808. Aside from the 13 bridges that cross the Niger River and several brooks, elements of interest include the United Church (1881), the Church of the Epiphany (1888), the round barn on the Holmes farm (1907), and one of the smallest fire halls in Quebec equipped with a tower used for drying hoses (1952).

Coaticook’s name was inspired by the word “Koatikeku,” from the Abenaki name of the river that runs through the territory. The municipality includes the hamlets of Baldwin’s Mills and Barnston. With its 131 agricultural operations, of which 50 are dairy farms, this area plays a major role in Quebec’s milk production, and the famous Coaticook ice cream company is a proud ambassador of this fact. At the Coaticook magic festival, Fête de la Magie, its magicians will be delighted to meet you at its workshops, courses, and shows in September. Coaticook highlights its heritage and culture with heritage tours, including Voices from Another Time, a tour of Coaticook’s cemeteries (with podcasts).

This municipality, nestled in a tiny valley in the heart of the Appalachians, looks towards New Hampshire. In addition to having the very first Caisse populaire Desjardins ever established in rural North America (1907), this small village is proud of its church museum (1877), which has retained its architecture and original interior finishings in varnished wood, as well as its angelic acoustics. The Maison de l’Arbre, with its exhibit on trees, and the Sentier Poétique, a 3-km poetry-themed walking trail, enliven the area and merit a visit. The Pioneer Trail stops here to pay tribute to Hermine Malouin-Lefebvre (1841-1941), a centenarian who was an early settler in this area.

Elevated to town status in 1899, Windsor adopted its current name after Windsor Castle in England, in 1914. Known today for its ultramodern Domtar plant, which produces fine paper, Windsor had a rich industrial past, as told at the Parc historique de la Poudrière. This was Quebec’s first black powder or explosive plant, which began operations in 1864, and currently is home to an interpretation centre. The site features a guide, a multimedia show, and hiking trails where several archaeological artefacts can be admired along the Watopeka River.

The municipality is an outdoor activity destination that is expanding with its fishing, hunting, and hiking activities. Teepee and cabin accommodations await vacationers. A gourmet stop at the Ferme du Péché Mignon completes its offer. Marinas

Along the Summit Drive, at 500 metres in altitude, Saint-Sébastien, founded in 1855 by farmers from the Beauce, is a charming little municipality. An agricultural region, it extends across a long plateau, bordered to the southeast by Mount Saint-Sébastien, a breathtaking view of which can be seen at the southern end of the village. This is the provincial and national granite capital, as evidenced by the neoclassical church built in 1889 and the presence of its industries well integrated into the landscape. Surrounded by scenic roads, Saint-Sébastien is well worth a stop to fully enjoy the view.

 k E-1

Stornoway, with its Scottish place name, and whose church steeple can be seen at the top of a hill, is well situated at the crossroads of routes 161 and 108. Three cemeteries serve as the final resting places of the first pioneers and a monument recalls the history of the founding families. The Catholic Church (1920) has a superb statue of Saint-Alphonse by renowned sculptor Louis Jobin. At the Summit Drive intersection, with a stunning view of the mountains, there is a stop featuring an illuminated star finder, symbolic of the International Dark Sky Reserve. On Route 161, along the banks of the Legendre River, a former flour mill is a tangible sign of the arrival of French Canadians. Horseback Riding

An area that has been inhabited since the end of the 19th century, Val-Racine adopted its name in 1957. In 1883, the settlers built a sanctuary on the peak of Mount SaintJoseph. A popular place for pilgrimages, it is accessible today via a paved road in Parc national du Mont-Mégantic. The chapel, overlooking the Appalachian Mountains, offers a panoramic view of the bordering mountains

General Information  –  Useful Information

Travelling in Québec Bars, Casinos and Purchasing Alcohol You must be at least 18 years old to enter bars, pubs, nightclubs and casinos, as well as to purchase or consume alcohol (be prepared to produce ID if asked). Wines and spirits are sold through the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ), the provincial liquor board. Beer is available at grocery and convenience stores, which also stock a limited selection of wines.

Driving in Québec Since Canada uses the metric system, speed limits and distances are posted in kilometres per hour (km/h) and gasoline is sold by the litre (L).

Cellulaire Use of a hand-held cell phone that does not have a “hands-free” function is prohibited while driving.

Drugs and Driving This Act introduces a zero-tolerance principle when it comes to drugs and driving by prohibiting anyone from driving a vehicle if there is a detectable presence of cannabis or any other drug in that person’s saliva. Offenders are subject to an immediate 90-day suspension of their driver’s licence. The new legislation also includes other measures, such as the prohibition from consuming drugs (cannabis or any other drug) in a road vehicle, on an off-road vehicle or on a bicycle.

4

Winter tires From December 15 to March 15, all taxis and passenger vehicles registered in Québec must be equipped with winter tires. This requirement also applies to rental passenger vehicles in Québec.

Road conditions For information on road conditions or other aspects of trip-planning, call 511 or 1-888-355-0511, or visit quebec511.info.

Tourist routes The official tourist routes are clearly marked with blue signs. They are designed to highlight the attractions of the regions through which they pass, and to enable visitors to discover the extent of Québec’s natural and cultural treasures. quebecoriginal.com/tourist-routes

Tourist signage In Québec, tourist regions and directions to services, attractions and activities are indicated by blue road signs. For more information, see visit panneaubleu.com and tourisme.gouv.qc.ca/signalisation (in French only).

Village-relais accredited services If you feel like taking a break or require assistance while on the road, look for the Village-relais signs. These point to towns that, together with local businesses, offer a range of accredited services and a safe and pleasant place to stop. villages-relais.qc.ca

Emergencies

Tipping Tipping is customary in restaurants, bars and taxis. The amount, which is not included in the bill, is generally equivalent to 15% of the total bill before taxes. For quick tip calculations, Québecers normally add up both taxes. Tipping bellhops or porters is at your discretion (generally, $1 per bag).
