Montebello is located in the Papineau Regional County Municipality of Western Quebec in the Outaouais region. It’s about 45 minutes north-east of Ottawa. I had the pleasure of visiting this picturesque city with my family this summer and would like to share my 5 favourite attractions to visit in Montebello.

Fromagerie Montebello produces fresh and delicious cheese in three formats: curds, block, and twists. Three fine cheeses are also produced, two with cow’s milk: the “Tête à Papineau” and the “Rebellion 1837”. They also make a sheep’s cheese called “Manchebello”. They also sell a selection of cheeses from across Quebec and homemade fresh breads. “Rebellion 1837” was recently crowned the winner for the category of « veined Blue cheese » at the 16 edition of Selection Caseus and this only after 3 years of opening their cheese factory.
