Memramcook Things to Do
I followed the roadsigns indicating a winery, to 1209 rue Principale St. in a small rural community near Memramcook called Pré-d'en-Haut, and came across the Belliveau Orchard winery.
Family-owned and operated, they've been here since 1932. At the present time, you won't find their products for sale at the provincial liquor store outlets, but if you like wine, it's worth taking the pleasant country drive to this place.
The owner let me taste three samples, before I chose two bottles to take with me.
Two were apple wine (white), and the third was a blueberry wine (red). I also picked up a bottle of pear wine and a bottle of sparkling apple wine, on a subsequent trip to the area.
They have a number of choices, including a sparkling apple wine with an intentionally low alcohol content (2%), or one with a 10% content. The blueberry wine was 12%, and the pear wine is 11%. They also produce a cherry wine, and an icewine.Related to:

A nice option when in the area.
Favorite Dish: I had the club sandwich, and it was good. I'm told that the homemade soup is great too.Related to:
