“Wine and Food of the Islands” Event

PRESENTATION

 

 

 “Wine and Food of the Islands” Event

 

3 days of taste immersion right on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence

 

Hôtels Accents and the restaurant Quai 360 present the first edition of the “Wine and Food of the Islands” event from September 14–17, 2017 at the Château Madelinot on the Magdalen Islands. Inspired for the most part by visitors and lovers of the Islands, the idea grew out of a desire to immerse visitors more fully in the richness of the Magdalen Islands. For three days, the festival will bring together foodies and wine lovers. The promoters of the event, the Château Madelinot and the restaurant Quai 360, have a unique program in store for you, focused on the ingredients that make up our region: the ocean, the wind, the flavours and, of course, the Islanders themselves!

CONCEPT

A trip to the Islands is an impressive, unforgettable experience in itself! And when it’s enhanced by wine tastings with a professional sommelier, gourmet outings showcasing Magdalen Island products, cultural visits and inspiring meetings, it has all the makings of an exceptional experience. Participants can opt to enjoy this experience as an all-inclusive package by staying at the Château Madelinot, sea front hotel from Hôtels Accents.
