“Summer Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My daughter and I went on a KAVA Tour on Saturday June 15 2013, It was great. The bus was very clean, Our tour guild had bottle water and snacks on the bus for our convenience which I thought
was very nice. Our tour guild Michelle was great, he was very informative,helpful,polite,and very
profession. We went to three wineries and all the wines we tasted were excellent. I am visiting from
California and when I come back I will be sure to take a KAVA Tour again.

“Winter Ice Wine Tour a Great One-Day Outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I went on the Winter Wine tour with two friends last Saturday and would highly recommend it. The guide was fabulous - funny, accommodating and knowledgeable. Our bus was comfortable, clean and perfect for a small group. The wine bag with water bottle and snacks was a nice touch. Our first stop in Brome was more educational – the wine maker explained how wine and ice wine is made. Then we went to a tasting room to learn how to mix cocktails with ice wine. This was very different to your typical wine tasting, and the drinks were great! Our next stop was at L’Orpailleur, where the first order of business was learning how to sabre a bottle of sparkling wine. Several bottles of the sparkling wine were served with a simple but hearty raclette lunch. We then proceeded to the downstairs tasting room, where we tried a few more ice wines. I would highly recommend trying La Part des Anges and La Marquise, both incredible ice wines. The third and final stop was at Union Libre, a “cidrerie” nearby. We tried different types of cider, with carefully picked food pairings, and even some cidre “tire” (loosely translates to taffy I believe). We purchased more bottles here – the “cidre de feu” was delightful.

This tour was a great way to spend a day. The townships are a great area to visit, and the products we tasted were very good. One caveat – Quebec wines (regular whites and reds) are still very young and not quite up to the levels of our Ontarian or American counterparts. I would recommend sticking to the sparkling wine, ice wines, and ice ciders only – which is what this tour highlighted, although you can taste other products as well.

“Winter tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We took the Saturday winter 1 day tour. The bus is clean, the driver fun, respectful and well informed. I don't want to mention the activities because I don't want to ruin the surprises but is a really fun way to learn about wine making and the vineyards in Quebec. And, cider culture too!
You'll be back sleepy of all the wine tasting and the unique lunch. A well balanced experience of sight, aromas and taste.
Complete satisfaction!

“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We reserved the half day tour online just the day before and were happy when the van pulled up at the appointed time. Off to we drove to the hills surrounding Montreal - the trees in full fall colors. We were taken to two unique properties and met with two passionate winemakers. Carl was a wonderful guide, he seems to know as much about wine as the winemakers. It was a real treat!
