Domaine Labranche - 565, Rang Saint-Simon, Saint-Isidore, Quebec
This must be even more gorgeous when the leaves change colour
Wind turbines can be viewed in every direction from Domaine Labranche - a great source of renewable energy
Bienvenue! Large on the outisde, but super cosy inside
Entrance area at Domaine Labranche
Carte des vins - very decently priced wines and liquors
"Please wait to be seated..."
One of the rooms at the Domaine - we took the last lunch seating and had this room all to ourselves
Salad: Beans, corn, garlic dressing, shallots, mustard
Carrots, celeriac, cranberries, sunflower seeds caramelized with maple syrup and creamy dressing
A little bit of that Sparkling Cider
Cream of cauliflower soup accompanied by garlic croutons
Family-style serving - plenty of food for all!
Parsnip and celeriac puree
Gigantic turkey wings, BBQ sauce with apples and cranberries
These were gone pretty quickly!
Apple and cinnamon beignets - these left the table pretty darn quickly too!
Apple crisp with pecans and maple syrup
The apple orchard - still young, but eventually I believe you'll be able to go apple picking here too
Time for a walk in the vineyards
A little taste of the grapes
Now...time to taste the ciders
Waiting, not so patiently, for the tastings to begin
Time for that tasting
Bye-bye Domaine Labranche! We'll be back for the Sugar Shack in the spring!
