In 2007, the Robert family planted 3,500 Frontenac Gris vines. Today, that number has grown into the tens of thousands, making Coteau Rougemont one of Quebec’s biggest estates.
The vineyard lies on the southern side of Mont Rougemont, a spot that enjoys exceptionally generous sunlight, and its winemakers work with consultant oenologist, Jérémie d’Hauteville. Originally from Beaujolais, d’Hauteville has developed winemaking templates specifically for the grapes grown in Quebec, and works in parallel with winemaker Patrick Fournier.
The results speak for themselves: the estate’s wines and ciders have won numerous national and international awards.
Michel Robert points out that his sisters, Julie and Isabelle, as well as his father Claude, are also heavily involved
