The Orpailleur Vineyard, a great adventure that first germinated in the dreams of two passionate sons of winemakers, Charles-Henri de Coussergues and Hervé Durand, and their partners Pierre Rodrigue and Frank Furtado. Together, they set roots in 1982 in the fertile soils of Dunham, birthplace of Québec viticulture.
Fed by sheer passion, the vines have grown, the wines have matured, and the four pioneers of the Quebec Wine Route have developed one of Québec’s most renowned and appreciated wines. Come experience the know-how of these winemakers. Come and see where it all started.
"The importance we give on providing discoveries and an unforgettable experience for our visitors is part of our DNA, our mission. Since the first day, by introducing guided tours and an interpretation component, we are engaged in demystify the world of winemaking and its artisans in Quebec." Charles-Henri de Coussergues
After much effort, rigor, perseverance and years of tenacity, today we are proud to see our wines achieve such standards of quality as well as enviable national and international recognition.
