15 of the best wineries in Canada


Vignoble de l’Orpailleur, Durham, Quebec

Quebec’s culture, landscapes, and history rival their French ancestry’s, but does their wine hold up? You be the judge. The Eastern Townships offers some unique alternatives to the Niagara Escarpment and Okanagan Valley for wine tourism. Since 1982, Dunham’s Vignoble de l’Orpailleur has earned over 100 medals and other awards and to some, carries the flag for Quebec-based wineries. If you’re a fan of theatrics, your hosts will open a Quebec brut with a saber and teach you all about ice wines before inviting you to join them for dinner at their restaurant: Le Tire-Bouchon.
