Many people are unaware that three famous wineries lie within the region of Memphremagog. Vignoble le Cep d’Argent produces many award-winning wines created through the traditional « méthode champenoise ». This year, for the first time, visitors can learn how to open a bottle with a sabre – a flamboyant technique dating back to the time of Napoleon!
The Vignoble Chemin de la Rivière, which is situated between Petit Lac Magog and Lake Memphremagog, offers a variety of tastings. The winery has been in the same French and Quebecois families for two generations and it’s definitely worth a stop. The views are spectacular!
More spectacular views await at Au Vignoble d’Orford. This charming site with Mont Orford in the distance, is imbued with the scents and sounds of Mother Nature, complimentng the flavours of their distinctive products.
Microbrasserie La Memphré is a microbrewery situated in the second oldest house in Magog - a stone’s throw from Lake Memphremagog. Its 100% natural, tasty brews are served in a warm, cozy ambience. Visitors are welcomed at the entrance by the statue of a penguin (!) whose clothing accesories change with the seasons.
