La Vie en Rosés
Nothing says summer like sipping a glass of rosé with a beautiful view of the vineyard. Alas, not many of us have a backyard winery, so we’re heading out to the Eastern Townships to tour the wine route.
Kava Tours offers a variety of round-trips to and from the Townships (tours start at $89 per person), so you don’t have to worry about tasting too many. We started our day with a delicious ice rosé wine at the lovely Domaine Côte d’Ardoise, followed by a beautiful lunch, complete with strawberry gazpacho and rhubarb pie at Domaine les Brome, a converted cabane à sucre. Our final stop at the Domaine Vitis included a picnic-style snack of artisanal cheese and pain au lardons alongside their delicately fruity rosé. But for the perfect girls’ getaway we recommend celebrating Les Roses en Fêtes (until June 26).
Taste the world through rosé-coloured glasses. Wine glasses, that is. —JN
