Last summer, we held a contest with Le Domaine du Ridge, a winery that we absolutely fell in love with located in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec. This year, the Domaine is opening Le Old Mill 1849, a Bistro & Auberge located in picturesque Stanbridge-East. Read on to find out how you could win a charming getaway for two to Quebec’s oldest vine-growing region.
Located along the Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route just north of the Vermont border, Stanbridge-East is a charming historical village nestled among rolling hills and green valleys. The old Cornell Mill, with its wooden waterwheel and red brick façade, stands as a testament of simpler times where the mill was the hub of economic and social activity.
Across the street from the mill stands what once was the Cecil House, a 19th century hotel which had fallen into a state of disrepair for some time. Lovingly restored in 2017 by the same owners as the Domaine, the building has been given a second life as Le Old Mill 1849, a Bistro & Auberge offering guests 5 comfortable rooms that have been aptly named after surrounding villages. The bistro’s mission is to promote local ingredients and products through a simple (and delicious!) yet refined menu.
Activities include a kayak adventure along the Pike River offered by Le Old Mill, driving along picturesque roads to discover the quaint towns and the myriad of activities the Eastern Townships have to offer, followed by a relaxing evening sipping a glass of wine in the piano bar.
This summer, Mobilia and Le Domaine du Ridge are offering you a chance to win a gourmet weekend getaway in this beautiful region.
