Vignoble Leblanc: from father to daughter
The Leblanc family has lived in Saint-Anicet, Montérégie, since 1928. It was Jacques Leblanc, who was the first to take an interest in the cultivation of the vine and in making wine. Then, when he died in 2013, his daughter Caroline and her husband, Bernard Jalbert, turned Jacques’ hobby into a business by creating Vignoble Leblanc, planting more vines and transforming the old barn into a cellar. Twenty-three years after planting the first vines on the land, they experienced their first commercial season in the summer of 2021.
The vineyard’s approximately 8,000 vine plants, mainly hybrid grape varieties adapted to the climate of Quebec, but also Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, allow the production of a red wine, a rosé of two whites and a late harvest wine.
