Winemaker in the Dunham Valley, in the Eastern Townships, Stéphane Lamarre is the owner of the Château de Cartes vineyard.
At the start of his career, he definitely had no idea that one day he was going to live from the vine and wine! He first started out as a television journalist-director, and has worked for well-known big entertainment chains such as TVA, Télé-Québec and RDS, among others. It was during these years that he had the chance to travel around the world. This allowed him to learn the culture of the vine according to different regions and climates and, to develop his passion for wine.
From 1994 to 1996, he also had the chance to study viti-viniculture in Mittelbergheim, in the beautiful region of Alsace, in the northeast of France.
