An exceptional rural setting, a breathtaking vista, a magnificent, modern wine storehouse — welcome to the Léon Courville's vineyard!
With 18 hectares of vines gracing the hills overlooking Lac Brome, this raised vineyard enjoys a microclimate that allows the grapes to be harvested in late fall, when they have achieved full maturity.
The poor, rocky soil, slightly chalky and clayey, offers a fertile medium for the shaping of characteristic wines, the expression of a remarkable terroir.
Stop by for the splendour of the scenery and stay for a taste of Eden. A new world awaits your discovery.
Our wines are a reflection of the quality of our soil, the meticulous way we cultivate our vineyards, the thoroughness and the patience of our winemaking. We work with nature and wwe put all our efforts to preserve it.
Our work is done according to the principles of sustainable agriculture, which favors a parsimonious use of products to control weeds and diseases. We do not use insecticides.
Because of our extended winters, the season starts a little later; at Léon Courville's vineyard, Hot air from Lac Brome can extend the season until the end of October. The harvest is manual with minimal manipulation. After stemming, the grapes are subjected to manual sorting in order to eliminate those that are inappropriate. Then put into the vats by gravity.
In the winery, automated and strict control of fermentation temperatures ensure good flavor enhancement. Finally, a judicious choice of barrels gives the wine its balance and harmony.
