Fromagerie Fritz Kaiser

Come and taste the delicious combination of Swiss cheese-making know-how with 100% Canadian milk. The result? Exceptionally high-quality washed rind firm, semi-firm, and soft cheese. “The cheese maker also has unique wine and cheese pairings, such as the Douanier paired with our Classique Blanc.”

Boulangerie Fortin

When Julie Ouellette makes her breads, pies, tarts, doughnuts, cookies, muffins, cupcakes and patés, an enticing andcomforting aroma floats through the air at the Marché des Jardiniers. Just one taste and you’ll understand why they’re one of the country’s best pastry shops. “The lemon tart is always on our table during holidays.”

Vignoble Rivière du Chêne (Lower Laurentians)

Microbrasserie Noire et Blanche

Located in a bicentennial building at the heart of a part of the city that’s full of culture and history, this microbrewery offers artisanal products and some fifteen made-in-Québec beers. “I love the Monastère d’Oka burger, their tartars, and their Sainte-Moustache beer.”

La Maison Lavande

Purple lavender fields greet all five senses from June to October, a perfect place for a country picnic. The boutique is open year-round, located in heritage houses on the property. “It’s a gorgeous place to visit as a family, or even for a romantic outing as a couple.”

Intermiel

A honey farm with 8,000 hives, a maple farm with 14,000 trees, and an orchard with 600 apple trees. “They have a lot of great local products and activities to thrill the biggest and littlest family members.”

Brasserie Dunham

“These beers rank on the world’s top 100 list. A farm-to-table restaurant lies adjacent to the pub, and excellent accommodation can be found at Boho Dunham, a luxurious boutique-hotel located just above it.”

La Halte des Pèlerins (Eastern Townships)

Pâtisserie Duquette

“Our go-to indulgence is the Perle aux Poires cake – pear ganache, praline puff pastry, semi-bitter chocolate mousse, and hazelnut cookies – paired with a glass of Le Voyageur white. Plus, the pastry shop supports many local causes, which makes us very proud. So much charity must surely cancel out some of the calories!”
85, 12e avenue Sud, Sherbrooke

Ferme piscicole des Bobines

Located in the heart of East Hereford, this farm harvests rainbow trout in a sustainable and eco-friendly fashion. “Bobines trout, served with a glass of La Halte des Pèlerins rosé, is a sublime treat!”
1, rue Saint-Henri, East Hereford

Fromagerie Nouvelle France

“When we find ourselves craving cheese, we opt for some made from sheep’s milk, like the Zacharie Cloutier, Madeleine, or Pionnier. Flavourful and delicious, they pair beautifully with a glass of La Halte des Pèlerins white.
