DESCRIPTION: 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 $10 (taxes included) for the visit only, or $20 per person when including a wine tasting session of several vintages. IMPORTANT: 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

Autumn at the most beautiful vineyard I've visited to date…though I was transported to Italy for the day.

Nestled in the Sutton mountains and visiting at this time of year was breathtaking to say the least. A small amount of time was needed to get everyone organized and pay for their... read more

I thoroughly enjoyed a 2-hour guided tour and wine tasting at the Chapelle Ste Agnes Vineyard in Sutton, Quebec. Once you pass through the stone walled entrance, you are transported into another place and time. Stunning vistas everywhere you turn. It's a fantasy come true. The chapel, the cellars, the terrasses, the reception facilities, and accommodations, all jaw-dropping! The cellar... More

A group of us went for the St Agnes Vineyard wine tour and tasting; what a memorable experience! Our hosts were warm and welcoming. The old world architecture and sloping hills take you back to another era. The castle-like ambiance of the wine tasting room was magical. As we slowly sipped on velvety ice wine by soft candle-light, we forgot... More

Chapelle Set Agnes Vineyard is an amazing treasure of antiques, architecture, grottos and of course award-winning ice wine. I loved the visit here; the attention to art and detail was jaw-dropping. I appreciated the authenticity of the growing and processing of the grapes. The winery is a labor of love, and although a paying visitor, I was treated like an... More

After advance booking for our group, we totally enjoyed the 2 hour tour we were given of the premises. The attention to detail in the planning and architecture of the property were astounding and the rock work in the landscaping simply beautiful. Definitely a work of love. Our hosts were very forthcoming with details and explanations. A lovely visit, although... More

If not for the pictures, I would be unsure that I had visited the same place as the other reviewers. We were the only ones there on the afternoon (it was raining). The tour cost $10/person. We bought two of the three offered wines (all were in stock) and we very much enjoyed the bottles we chose (both ice wines).... More

Thank you for your kind comments, - we appreciate the time you've taken to share your review with us and other travellors! Being new to TripAdvisor (frankly, we really should have known that this site was created regarding our venue, but we didn't, and have been very busy on the agricultural and visit/event side of this project).

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

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.

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
