Quebec's "Cider Route" a population destination

Photo by Sue Frause
Despite its longtime popularity as an alocholic drink among locals, cider has had a complex history the province of Quebec. In fact, from 1920 to the 1970s, the tasty apple drink was illegal La belle province.

These days, Quebec is home to more than 20 small cideries, which I toured several years ago during an autumn visit. The 185-mile Cider Route (Route des Cidres
) was formed ten years ago in the Monteregie region, located south and west of Montreal. Sixty different types of cider are produced each year, including sparkling and ice cider varieties.

Two of the most popular cideries are Domaine Pinnacle in Frelighsburg and Vignobles les Blanc Couteaux in Dunham.
