WHAT YOU WILL VISIT:

Domaine le Cageot
An established vineyard and rustic agricultural estate, Domaine le Cageot offers the opportunity to experience regional wine tasting combining blueberries, raspberries, black currants, and native grapes in a variety of products grown on the lush property. Meet the artisan winemakers, the passionate Tremblay family, a father and son duo and discover this handcrafted winery. This family owned business initially devoted their land to raspberry culture, but two decades later invested in new crops which eventually led to wine making. Building slowly their crops and offer over time, they now have over 8000 vines and their own Grape variety (the Cépage St André). All products made at Domaine le Cageot are dedicated to using regional ingredients in award-wining creations.

La Voie Maltée
La Voie Maltée is an award-winning local microbrewery that offers tours of its operation, educating visitors on the fermentation of beer and the microbrewery process. This microbrewery produces a variety of seasonal craft beers with distinctive characteristics, which you can appreciate during a tasting session in an entertaining atmosphere.
