Vignes Chez Soi was created in 2010 by a young energetic creative and innovative Caroline Fontaine.
At the time she had a vision and a goal: no-one in Quebec should be unaware that delicious table grapes could easily grow in their own gardens, courtyards, on their patios and terraces.
Up until then, very few Quebecers had heard about tasty grapes that would grow in their own backyard with NO need for protection during the long hard Quebec winters.
From now on, Caroline would be Quebec table grape’s ambassador and she would devote all her energy to promote it so that, soon enough, it becomes as popular as Quebec apples, blueberries and strawberries!
And it worked! Quebec table grape grows everywhere in our great country: from Chicoutimi to Sherbrooke all the way up to Tadoussac and as far as Magdalen Islands and of course right in downtown Montreal.. and it’s only the beginning! The word is spreading faster than expected: today our grapes grow in Ontario, Saskatchewan and even… Alberta !
Our mission will be completely fulfilled once Mexico and Chile’s grapes that can nowadays be found in our grocery stores will be replaced by OUR very own grapes that grow in OUR vineyards all over CANADA!
«Come on board and join us and follow us in this beautiful adventure! Let’s all together spread the word and be proud of OUR OWN Canadian Grape!»
