Description: Located in the Sutton Mountains of southern Quebec, the Chapelle Ste Agnès...
Located in the Sutton Mountains of southern Quebec, the Chapelle Ste Agnès vineyard was established in 1997 by Henrietta Antony, a Montreal antique dealer and is family-owned. The vineyard is named after a stone chapel built several years earlier on the same site and consecrated to Saint Agnes, a thirteenth century Bohemian saint. The vineyard has over 7000 vines and is focused on the production of icewine and other dessert wines and a limited amount of white table wine and rosé. Built on a steep hillside with massive stone walls supporting 18 terraces, the rows of vines follow the gentle curve of the hillside, creating a veritable amphitheatre. The cellars of the Chapelle Ste Agnès vineyard are a large medieval style underground complex, where temperature and humidity are almost constant year round. The cellars consist of four underground levels, and feature a number of stone barrel and cross vaults that were built by a master stone cutter from France and by vault masters from southern Moravia. In order to build these vaults, dozens of varying and specialized forms needed to be constructed. The end result is a medieval style cellar complex dedicated to the production and storage of our wines. The vineyard is located about 1 hour 20 minutes from Montreal, just a couple of miles north of the Vermont border. We are also located in the Eastern Townships which is a beautiful part of Québec and offers many interesting and tasty restaurants, B&B's, is home to many high-end craftsmen and artists, and provides a wonderful playground for sports enthusiasts. DISTANCE from: Montreal 111 Km 69 miles 1HR 20MIN Burlington 116 Km 72 miles 1HR 15MIN Boston 400 Km 249 miles 4HR New York 639 Km 397 miles 6HR 30MIN ACCOMODATIONS: New in 2015: you can also stay at the vineyard in our two suites (min 2 days stay). Please refer to our website for more info. VISITS: Visits are possible year-round and they are always guided. IN SEASON: From JUNE 1st until the end of OCTOBER, every WEDNESDAY and SUNDAY at 1:30pm, we have our classic 2-hour "Open Tours". Anyone can attend and NO RESERVATION is required. Plan on a pleasant 2-hour visit to learn about the Romanesque stone chapel, vineyard, medieval cellars and to participate in the wine tasting. COST: Visits cost $20 (taxes included) per person , or $30 per person when including a wine tasting session of several vintages. NOTE: If you are a group of a minimum of 8 persons, you may like to make a reservation for a private visit according to your schedule. This tour must be booked ahead of time by email or by telephone. It also lasts 2 hours and the fees are $20 and $30 as above. Please call or email us to make arrangements. If one shows up on the estate, in season (June1 to end October), at any other time between 10am and 5pm without a reservation, you have an excellent chance of partaking in a shorter 30 minute "Mini Tour and Wine Tastings" at $20 per person (taxes included). An exception to our capability to offer the Mini Tour would be some Saturday afternoons as the estate does host private events, particularly weddings. Should you have any further questions on planning an event or regarding accomodations at the vineyard, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to welcoming you to our vineyard in the near future! Chapelle Ste Agnès Vineyard John Antony

The grounds were nice but the concept a little kitsch. Beautiful views, particularly when autumn foliage is at its peak. Wines were nice, but given the price, they should discount the cost of the tour if you buy wine... The guide was not very good, he gave the tour in french and although a number of participants were english speakin... More

I booked the place for a baptism celebration 3 months in advance. 22 guests. A celebration, a visit and a lunch. Their price was of 70$ per person. No discussion. No bargaining. Made a deposit of 500$. Went to check everything was ok a couple of time. Two days before the event they called and raised their price (to add10$... More

We, a group of 4 adults, visited the place on Sunday Oct. 13th 2013 (Thanksgiving weekend). As suggested on their Interneet site, I contacted John Antony (the owner's son) on Aug. 13th which was TWO months prior!..., to make sure we would be part of an eight-person guided tour of the place. I asked for the 1:30p.m. tour and for... More

This was a disappointment. As soon as we set foot on the site, we were advised that we could not walk on the grounds without taking the guided tour and, of course, paying. We should have turned around right then and there, but we had driven a long way to get there, so felt obliged. It was only at the... More

I stumbled upon this magnificent vineyard while travelling through Quebec's Eastern Townships (Cantons L'Est) just last week. If I had known about this jewel sooner, I would have already had made several visits. I was fortunate to meet the owner, Mrs. Henrietta Antony - the visionary behind the stunning setting, the stone Romanesque style chapel filled with medieval antiques, the... More

This vineyard is absolutely superb! We have visited vineyards all over North America - the Napa valley, Niagara peninsula, Okanagan Valley and the Finger Lakes region, but nothing even comes close to this vineyard in Canada. The site is simply stunning, the chapel is magnificent and is straight out of a story book and the cellars built 45 feet deep... More

The place is really unique, with a chapel containing rare historical pieces, an impressive domain to visit. But we were a bit surprised to hear the cost of the visit, which we had forgotten to ask: just as we were about to leave, we were told that we had to pay 25 $ per person for a 90 minute visit...

The vineyard was beautiful, although the tour cost was a high - $20/ person. The ice wine they produce is very good, but they didn't have any of their wines in stock. Overall, it is worth a tour, if only for the uniqueness and beauty of what can only be called an Estate.
