Unique tour learning about how this little niche wine is made...
but beware- all those winery's gift shops...did that get expensive fast!
but the tour was fun, the guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, considering he had to do everything in two languages. . . and with these group tours, that's important- to not have a guide who just repeats things and is on auto pilot.

Great tour- nice transportation and the food was amazing. It was fun to try all the wine and the fire cider. Would have been nice to know that some parts were mostly in French but the guide helped in translation a bit.
Great tour, good value for money and well planned. We particularly liked the first 2 vineyards on the tour.
The tour was great! The wineries were very hospitable and provided good information on the wine making process. Lunch was delicious and prefect for the trip. The driver was very friendly and provided a lot of info on the towns and area as we drove around.
Bitterly cold but still fun. Delicious wines and food, great guide.
I would recommend anyone going to the Montreal area to consider going on this tour. My wife and I had the best time. Each of the 3 destinations offered up their own unique experience. First stop you learn how to use ice wine in different cocktails, second place you are served a delicious lunch, then finally finish off the day with some ice cider! We had a wonderful time!

Excellent way to depend the day! Nicholas our tour guide was very knowledgable and easily translated from French to English making sure we all understood the process of winemaking. . The wineries were all very nice and we tasted some great wines. Nicholas's humor and wit quickly brought our group together and we all became friends which led to hours of laughter.
Thank you for a very fun and enjoyable experience.

Montreal Ice Wine Tour delights!
Our driver and guide for the day, Michel, was very friendly and well informed. He not only took time to talk about the locations we were visiting but along the way gave the group nice information about the region in its history and also for its importance for wine harvesting in Quebec. All the wineries visited were enjoyable and well prepared for our visit. The wine tastings were quite nice and the explanations for production of ice and fire wine in Quebec were thorough and interesting. The group size was just right in order to get personal attention and to make it quite pleasant. They did a nice job in explaining in both english and french with ease. The location and wineries outside of Montreal were all very picturesque and it made for a lovely excursion and day! I would recommend this tour to friends.
For our first trip to Montreal in the middle of winter, this was a perfect way to spend the day. Our tour guide, Jon Paul was very knowledgeable. Not only did he explain the history of Montreal, but he made sure that most everything was translated into English, and he was a pleasure to be around. The first winery Leon Courville was my personal favorite. Learning how to make cocktails was so much fun. The woman who runs the winery was friendly, warm, and very welcoming to our group. She made sure we not only made delicious cocktails, but had a great time. For those of you who enjoy wine, I highly recommend this tour. The only negative aspect was that our lunch request was not honored we do not eat pork. Subsequently, there was not much to select from.
Excellent tour, and a wonderful activity for a freezing winter's day. Tour guide Michel was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. All three places visited were excellent, and I purchased items from them all! Loved this tour.

Great tour, wonderful hosts. The locations were so friendly and totally worth the price. The meal was so tasty. I was surprised at all of the opportunities. I do wish I would have know it was going to be mostly in French, I would have studied more. : but everyone was very nice about helping us translate.
We had a very nice time. The guide was pleasant and informative. The bus was comfortable. The wineries were great. We really loved the mixology course but are still waiting for our recipes to be forwarded to us!
The Ice wine tour was a delight , you visit 3 places : 2 wineries and 1 cider .The whole trip was smooth and fun with Michel our tour guide. "Domaine Les Brome" was our 1st stop for wine tasting and Mixology cocktails (Many Tastings) . You also get a lot of explanations on how ice wine is done .Then we headed towards the 2nd winery called "L'orpailleur" where you also have a lot of ice wine tasting and bubble wine too. We were informed about the history of the winery too ."L'orpailleur" has a small eco museum related to barrel making and many other thing related to wine making. At the 2nd stop we had our lunch : Raclette (which was cold meats , raclette cheese , a piece of bread and salad). Last we went to the Cider called "Union Libre Cidre Et Vin" where we have a lot of Cider tasting with some cold meats/cheese. We had the pleasure of tasting the Fire Cider and Apple Syrup on ice (delicious). One of the owners Anoushka was extremly passionate about what she does and made the visit super enjoyable. Overall highly recommended - the reason for the 4 stars is the lunch which could have been better and would have made this trip Perfect.
This was something of a mixed experience. Originally we thought it was a full day with lunch, but were advised that it would only be a half day and that we would visit an ice winery and an ice ciderie, as well as learning to mix cocktails. In the event we visited the first two but there was no cocktail element.
The first visit was interesting but overly long with the host explaining everything in great detail and in 2 languages. As a result there was less time to taste the produce.
The ice cider visit was more focused with the tasting including some food pairings. The whole style was tuned to the audience and took far less time than the first visit.
The tour guide was friendly enough, but the snowy conditions meant we tended to listen to music rather than listen to him.
