Chapelle Ste. Agnès Vineyard


2565 Chemin Scenic
Sutton Quebec JOE 2K0





Located in the Sutton Mountains of Southern Quebec, the Chapelle Ste. Agnès Vineyard was established in 1997 by Henrietta Antony, a Montreal antique dealer. The Vineyard is named after a stone chapel built several years earlier on the same site, and consecrated to St. Agnès, a thirteenth century Bohemian saint. The Vineyard has over 7000 vines and is focused on the production of ice wine and other sweet dessert wines.

Author John Schreiner states.There is no Vineyard in Quebec with a setting more beautiful than Chapelle Ste. Agnès

The Vineyard is built on a steep hillside, with massive stone walls supporting 18 terraces. Thousands of tons of stones and gravelly soil were used to create the Vineyard. The rows of vines follow the gentle curve of the hillside, creating a veritable amphitheater

The Chapelle Ste. Agnès Vineyard is largely cultivated by hand. The vines are planted close together in an Alsatian manner. To enable the vines to survive the harsh winter, most vintners in Quebec cover their vines with earth, a technique known as hilling. At the Chapelle Ste. Agnès Vineyard, the vines are spared the stresses of hilling and de-hilling. Instead, every autumn, each vine is individually wrapped in a coat of insulating material. In addition, the Vineyard is cultivated organically, without herbicides or pesticides.

The chapel was founded by Henritte Antoney. The winery was planted in 1977 under the direction of Christian Barthomeuf .
