VineyardsThe story of wine in Quebec starts with Jacques Cartier who, in 1535, discovered wild vines everywhere in the region of Québec, more precisely on the Île d'Orléans. This is why he named the island Bacchus Island. Over the following years, New-France and Quebec inhabitants tried to import vines, unfortunately without any success, since they were not adapted to resist the winter cold. Finally, towards the end of the 20th century, the craze for Quebec wines has known a new beginning. Today, vine is grown in the regions of Québec, Chaudière-Appalaches, Lanaudière, Laurentides, Montérégie and the Eastern Townships. Overall, about 50 vineyards produce hand-made wine in Quebec. Quebec's wines are delicious, inspired by their French or Italian cousins, but always with a special Quebec touch. Some wines are even flavoured with regional products, which give them a really pleasant and particular taste. Quebec's wines are so tasty that, over the last 16 year, they have won no less than 140 medals in international competitions!
