“COmpletely unexpected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

There are lots of vineyards in this part of the Eastern Townships but this one is truly unique. You have the impression of being in Europe because all the buildings have been built of stone in a very traditional way, the cellars have been carved out of sheer rock and the chapel looks like it could be hundreds of years old. The tour takes about 90 minutes ($15) if you include the tasting (optional for an extra $10) and includes a look at all the buildings as well as the beautiful site and the cellars and vineyard itself. Note that you cannot just turn up - if you are a group of 6 you can pre-book otherwise you have to join an open tour run on Sundays and Wednesdays at 1.30pm. On the day we went there were a lot of people and the tour was run in both English and French which was a little tedious at times but still worth it. Their speciality is a sweet wine worth bearing in mind as regards the tasting.

“A little piece of Europe in Sutton ValleyMississquoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

The location is on the Scenic Highway (views that take your breath away). I am a resident here of over 33 years and saw the building stages of Chapelle Ste Agnes Vineyard span over 6 years. Pay attention to the detail of the tiered landscape/chapelle/caverns Every bit worth a visit. Tours $25.00 include tastings of their delicious wines and don't forget your camera. Perhaps call ahead, they often have private functions i.e. weddings. Wonderful website:

“Just like a museum !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Let's start with the things we didn't like:
- Price is a bit high compared to other wine tasting experiences in this area.
- We did not learn as much about wine production as we did at "L'Orpailleur" and "Le Cep d'Argent".

Now the fun things:
This is an incredible domain! The owners are millionaires and they re-created a real museum out of this vineyard. The lady is an antiquarian in the West part of Montreal and the family is investing everything they got in this vineyard. Chapelle built by a French architect and Master Mason from 11th generation! The Chapelle contains stuff such as original main doors from Louis IV reign and German stained glass from 17th century.
They also built a castle, with 3 levels of caves for wine storage...42 feet deep into solid rock. Wine tasting is done at first level of cave in the castle, on a 17th century massive wood table....
Awesome visit. It's worth it just for the tour of the domain. About the wine stuff, it is okay.

“Perfect Wedding Destination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

We attended a wedding at Chapelle Ste Agnes Vineyard. The chapel is very small...maybe 80 people tops..but nicely done. The site is beautiful and perfect for a small wedding.

The wedding we attended had 75 people in attendance. It was perfect for the occasion. While the photos were being taken we visited the wine cellars and learned about Ice Wines. I am not a fan of desert wines, but really enjoyed the tour.

The estate used for the reception was very nice too. It was a perfect venue and the owners very friendly.

The photos are beautiful...what a setting. If I lived closer and was getting married, I wold consider Chapelle Ste Agnes Vineyard.

I am not sure about the standard Vineyard tour...ours was special due to the wedding.

My girlfriends and I had a lovely afternoon... Highly recommend.
