Ottawa to Montreal Foodie Tour

FollowMe2Adventure | Mar 29, 2011 08:39 AM

My fiance and I just returned from our Food and Wine inspired tour and we had a blast, so I thought I'd share the itinerary in case anyone else would be interested. The tour would work any time of the year, but if you go in the spring during sugaring off like we did, the ferry in point fortune and como isn't running so its a bit more driving. If anyone has any specific questions about any of these places, feel free to let me know. We had the time of our lives and we came back with so many great foodie treasures.

Day 1 (on the way to montreal)
Beau's Brewery in Vankleek Hill (we didn't go but it was originally on our list and it has some fun tours and beer)
Vankleek Hill Vineyard (marty has white wine now, and will be bottling red and rose soon)
Les Beaux Bisons (organic bison: must email jacques ahead of time)
Roaming Boar Farms (wild boar, we didn't make it to this one because of a miscommunication with my fiance)
Optional Ferry from Point Fortune to Carillon (running from late spring to fall), otherwise drive back to Hawkesbury to cross.
Boutique Des Bec Fins in Lachute (charcutterie)
Ferme Gaspor St. Canut Pork (call ahead for possible tour and meat sales on site)
Fromagerie Mirabel
Au Dieu De Ciel in Sainte Jerome (beer)
Fromages de la Table Ronde in Sainte Sophie
Then we checked in to the B&B Auberge les Passants de Sans Soucy in old montreal which we highly recommend
Dinner at PDC (service excellent, food pretty unusual but great)

Day 2 (around montreal)
Mycoboutique(mushroom store off st. Laurent)
Jean Talon Market
Fairmount Bagel
Schwartz's Deli
Dinner at Garde Manger (food slightly overpriced but atmosphere rocked)

Day 3 (back to ottawa in a roundabout way)
Atwater Market
Chateau Taillefer Lafon (wine)
Vignoble Riviere Du Chene (wine)
Nid Outruche (ostriche meat: we didn't make it here as we were running late)
PDC Sugar Shack (they do sell meat pie, jerky, doughnuts, t-shirts and caramel corn at their counter and we saw Martin playing in the wood pile but we were too shy to interrupt him)
Intermiel (honey),
Les Fromages du Verger
Magasin Abbaye Oka
(again if the ferry is running take it over to rigaud here, but if not you now have to drive back into laval and take the hwy back)
Vignoble Cote de Vaudreuil (south of como)
La Romance du Vin
Sucrerie de la Montagne for dinner in rigaud.
