By far the best tasting wine in the area in my humble, uneducated opinion. You need to try the aged alcoholic beverage that is created in the large glass jugs sitting on the outdoor shelving all around the building. Truly a delight.

We decided to tour the wine region of the Eastern Townships on a whim... We were so pleasantly surprised at what we discovered. The wine at Orpailleur was the best of all the vineyards we stopped at. We bought some of their wine and later in the evening we were at a local restaurant that had one of Orpailleur's wines... More

The grounds of this vineyard were amazingly beautiful. My husband and I enjoyed a tasting outdoors on a lovely Saturday. The wines were very good, especially the rose which was my favorite among all the vineyards we've visited in the region. The atmosphere could have been a bit more welcoming, but perhaps it was just the day. I would like... More

What an ambiance, location is wonderful and away from the big city. Nice ride and on clear days we can see Vermont's mountains, so majestic in the background. The restaurant is very nice, always a pleasure going back, worth the ride. The new building addition for weddings and special occasions offers a stunning view of the vineyard.

To begin, I was hesitant about visiting a vineyard, as we were travelling with our four-year-old. A few weeks ahead, I contacted de L’Orpailleur to inquire whether the attraction was appropriate to visit with a young child. I received a warm reply stating that our family was most welcome and they provided tour times. However, our welcome once there was... More

Dunham has a micro climate which means we can actually grow grapes and produce wine here! Lots of vineyards and vignobles in the area. This is the very best. The wine is great, especially the very special ice wine fermented from frozen grapes. The staff will explain the wine making, type of grapes and everything else about the 160,000 bottles... More

This is a great vineyard to visit. This is clearly one of the best wine produced in Quebec, and tasting their different products is not only a learning experience, but also very enriching. They also have a guided tour if you are interested in their history.

Great Experience at l'Orpailleur. This vineyard is one of (if not) the biggest Quebec producer. The young lady who served us was very hospitable, welcoming and knowledgeable. This vineyard is one of three stops as part of the Dunham passport offered at Kava Tours. We were able to see some of the old equipment used, part of their fermentation process... More
