Be still my heart. Please go Easy on Me. The Domain Dumont Chapell Ste-Anges is on sale at the time of writing. Located in Sutton (Quebec), just 90 minutes out from Montreal, it is a short hop to the United States border.
The property is a famous backdrop for Adele’s song (her voice is beautiful, by the way) “Easy on Me,” which came out on October 15, 2021. There’s even a portrait of Adele on one of the walls. We’ll add some video links at the end of the article.

I should point out that this looks like a commercial property sale but can be a residential real estate opportunity for family and friends.
Recent Google reviews are favorable, with options for accommodation for weddings, stayovers, and wine tasting. Their website has been under construction since June 2021, and it also appears that the vineyard stopped selling its wine in 2019.
Given that this is a massive property, the owners likely decided it was time to retire. Lately, I have seen a lot of businesses in some urban centers shutting their doors because of a hot property market. Sometimes, people want to retire.
Speaking of Adele, I absolutely think she has one of the best voices in the world. I also think this is probably the best James Bond opening single ever!
Domain Dumont Chapell Ste-Agnes
The 173-acre European-style estate is an Eastern townships hideaway. So much so that few people knew about it unless they were getting married, devoted wine hunters, or Quebec residents!
The principal manor house residence, built-in 1846, saw renovations in 1990 and 2021. Renovations included a new guest house in 1997, a new building (with loft), a chapel, a triple garage, and in 2008, a castle with a reception hall.
The vineyard estates come stacked with 7000 vines at altitude. Sutton, Quebec’s altitude is about 758 feet, and Sutton is close to Mont Sutton, a popular ski resort with an altitude of 3,176 feet. The Town of Sutton has a population of 3906 (Census 2011).
According to Stone Street Wines, higher altitude and elevation allows for more concentrated sunlight, and with every 1000 feet gain, this increases UV ray levels by 10-12%. The benefits? Thicker grape skin leads to rich, concentrated colors and more tannin’s. Yummy.
The rustic architecture and the wine room interiors exude a French flair. Packed with vaulted ceilings and terracotta tile floors, you might think, “When in Rome”…ahem, Quebec. 😉
The estate has several land lots available for major real estate projects with buyers with a new vision.
Vineyard Estate: Specifications
- 173 acres
- Six buildings
- Manor House with Red Ballroom
- Castle with reception hall
- Ten bedrooms
- Fourteen bathrooms
- Four powder rooms
- Vineyard with 7000 vines
- Production facility to make red, white, ice, and port wine
- 11,000 trees with taps ready to produce maple syrup
Reading about maple syrup, I couldn’t resist. Did you know in late 2021, the Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (QMSP) released 22m kilograms from its strategic supply, amounting to half of its reserve?
QMSP is like OPEC, the global petroleum syndicate. The reason? A shorter harvest and heightened demand worldwide. Canada’s “liquid gold” is a delicious business. Quebec producers supply 75% of the world’s maple syrup!
With access to 11,000 trees on Domain Dumont Chapell Ste-Agnes Estate, maybe the new buyer will have a higher calling, serving the world’s needs. 😉
You can read more about it on the BBC.
The property sale has Engel & Völkers (Montréal) Canada Inc. as the lead agent with file number E&V ID AM-219379.
It lists CAD 5.499 million or about USD 4.3 million.
YouTube: Adele’s Easy on Me
You get a great glimpse of the estate’s interior near the middle of the video. Filming for Adele’s new song on the site happened in 2021. We are unable to embed this video and it’s likely a YouTube Licensing restriction.
Enjoy this scenic video tour of Vignoble Chapelle Ste Agnès, in Sutton, in the Eastern townships.
This magical property has many fantastic qualities that few modern design elements (windows) to traditional styles, with French-inspired interiors, and Italian-inspired terracotta tiles. There’s a chapel, vineyard, maple syrup and close access to Mont Sutton (a famous ski resort) and the Vermont, United States border. What’s not to like.
