Would it also be helpful to contact a Quebec winery in advance to see if they give tours in English?

Mouldy Old Schmo,

You are always welcome to post about Quebec, and your interest in our country is noted and appreciated.

To answer your question, no, Quebec wine isn't anything special.

What was special was the way that guy in the video was blinking his eyes, looking into the camera and sipping the Sangria - now that was special..

That's not an affectation. He has acute dry eye syndrome. Any time you see anybody blinking like that, that's what the problem is. It's quite painful.

Yeah I actually had that for a time. I made it worse by using visine which is a big no no. I got over it by increasing Omega 3 fatty acid intake and weaning myself off visine in favour of systane. I was looking at the whole scene in combination - it just came across as awkward and kind of amusing.

Me too. Only I didn't get it from visine, I got it from the sterilizing drops the eye specialists have to put in to sterilize the eyes before giving me injections in the eyes every two months.

I thought that young man was really cute and sweet natured. If I was there and 40 years younger I'd have been sitting across from him over a glass of that yummy black currant wine and rapidly blinking my eyes right back at him.

Ah ok so you got the drops for a different reason. My mom has Glaucoma and cataracts so I know how much eye problems can really impact people.

The guy was pretty hot. Just the way he took that Sangria from her and looking in the camera - it was funny. She was very sweet as well.

Mouldy Old Schmo is probably one of the main reasons why I have decided to stick around this forum. His questions are creative and intriguing and one can't help but wonder what's the next surprise he has in reserve.

Anyways, I grew up in the vicinity of a vinyard in the Sherbrooke area and I used to stop by and pick grapes when I was riding my bike as a teenager. I saw this vineyard come to life as the owner started planting the vines 20 years ago or so. To be honest, the wine was bad even when I first tried it around 15 years ago, and I was far from a connoisseur back then (I could drink any cheap wine and 99% of the time I thought it was good). I would be curious to try it again to see if quality has improved. I might go to the SAQ and buy a bottle to try it again.

Oh, I like Mouldy too. I probably indulge him more than anyone on here. (And we also exchange private messages sometimes.)
