The wine route by bicycle : Auberge West Brome 

The region of Brome-Missisquoi, known for its picturesque scenery, is the Eastern Townships’ hidden gem. The wine route by bicycle is a unique experience we highly recommend. The circuit, called “La Boucle Gourmande”, is a challenging 93 km bike route that will put your physical shape to the test all while satisfying your inner epicurean.

“La Boucle Gourmande"

Cider mills, local breweries, sugar shacks, bakeries and chocolate workshops can be found on your journey. You will also have the opportunity to taste wine from 7 different vineyards. There is nothing better than to take on a challenge with your loved one. After going beyond your personal limits you will both be rewarded with dazzling landscapes and culinary discoveries.

Vineyard Choice

The “La Boucle Gourmande” is a bicycle circuit that takes approximately 6 hours to complete. If you plan on making pit stops to explore the region it is recommended to only visit a portion of the vineyards.
