August 24 to 30: Pick your own berries in Outaouais
On a farm in the countryside or along a golf course, the Outaouais region has all kinds of fruits that’s ripe for the picking. Take advantage of the warm weather to pick your own berries.
Pssst… Don’t forget to bring back enough fruits in order for Grandma to prepare her famous homemade jam!

Located in the Petite-Nation La Lièvre, Domaine Mont Vézeau is known for its unique complicity between the vineyards, which is composed of no less than 9,000 vines, and the five acres of strawberry fields. In addition to the traditional red and white wines, the owners produce a strawberry wine and a raspberry fortified wine greatly appreciated by oenophiles.
Many activities are offered on site: picking your own strawberries, self-guided and guided tours of the vineyards and wine tasting. Personally, I love the picnic areas in the heart of the vineyard, where you can enjoyed freshly picked strawberries!
