La Romance Du Vin

108 Chemin du Bas de la Riviere
Rigaud (Quebec)
J0P 1P0


 


La Romance du vin Vignoble was founded in April 1999. In May of the same year 6,000 vines were planted.

The vineyard is located near the Ontario border facing the Rigaud river near Mount Rigaud,covering approximately 60 acres sloping at about 2 degrees from the west to the east. The rather heavy soil, mainly glacial deposits called 'Till', is composed of sandy clay sediments of marine and lakeside origin.

Located at only two kilometres south of lake of Two-Mountains, the vineyard profits from this vast stretch of water to moderate the ambient air temperature. Indeed, since the dominant winds coming from the west and from the north pass above that extensive length of water, they warm up by taking a little heat, one or two degrees thus avoiding the late frosts of spring in the beginning of May or the early autumnal frosts of the end of September or at the beginning of October. The season is thus lengthened, making it possible for the grapes to take a greater maturity and the wood of the vines to ripen over a longer period. According to Statistics Canada, our area profits from a period of sunshine varying from 2,900 to 3,100 Thermal Units , based on the growth of corn.
