European charm & elegance … in the green
It's a quick 1hour 20 minutes from cosmopolitan Montreall
         

One of the easiest ways to honor the planet is by using the great outdoors as the backdrop for a momentous event; your wedding.

Chapelle Ste Agnès private vineyard offers a spectacular setting, nestled in the Sutton mountains of the picturesque Eastern Townships, just north of Vermont. A quick one hour 20 minutes from cosmopolitan Montreal, this internationally recognized icewine producing vineyard exudes calm, beauty, elegance and demonstrates great attention to detail, all the while complementing the abundance of nature surrounding it. It has been compared to Tuscany, without even leaving the North American continent. Every vine is attended to with utmost care and individual attention, by hand. No chemical fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, nor synthetic fungicides are used.Geothermal energy

 

 
(derived from heat deep in the earth's crust) is tapped from the earth beneath for a clean, renewable energy source for the needs of comfort and function of the guests and vines alike. And the buildings or shall we call them architectural jewels; built to last several centuries, at least. Among its many attributes is a visually stunning terraced vineyard with 4 levels of medieval wine cellars extending down to the bedrock of the escarpment and a Romanesque stone chapel built by stonemasons from France. Imagine your wedding ceremony held on the estate followed by a champagne cocktail in one of several locations such as the rock gardened lawn bursting with ?owers which goes on forever to the almost touchable mountainous horizon, the secluded two level stone terrace in the middle of the vineyard, the cobble stoned terrace on top of the wine cellars (each stone imported from Bohemia and installed by artisans for an authentic European feel) which offers a commanding view over the vineyard and lake. Your splendid nuptial dinner awaits you and your guests in one of several
 
locations, depending on your tastes and the size of your group. A solarium which opens its French doors onto the cellar terrace would be intimate and sumptuous for a close-knit affair of around 30, or the grand reception hall - available from Spring 2008 - complete with caterers kitchen will allow you to create the banquet of your dreams. Many other charming discoveries await the discerning bridal couple and their guests. Choose your own exquisite chef (he268licopter service is arrangeable), or let us suggest our regional reputable grands chefs and enjoy local quality produce. And don't be surprised if you encounter a local deer, raccoon or other wildlife passing by to help you celebrate this momentous day and remind you of the splendour of green.
