Chef Elouan Riaud
My name is Elouan Riaud, I am 21 years old, and I have been passionate about cooking for 6 years now. I was born in France, in the town of l’Oie, located in the Vendée department in the Pays de la Loire region. This is where I began my career as a chef. I acquired my skills through a training program that started with an apprenticeship for a CAP certification over 2 years, followed by a Professional Certificate, also completed through apprenticeship. To refine my pastry techniques, I then completed my studies with an additional certification in restaurant desserts.
Before joining Auberge des Gallants in Quebec in January 2023, I had the privilege of working in a semi-gastronomic restaurant in France. My choice to settle in Canada stems from my attraction to its magnificent landscapes and my admiration for the country’s love for high-quality gastronomy. Working with fresh, local products was a significant factor that strengthened my decision to continue my career here.
Chef Diego Kipper Schmidt
Diego embarked on his culinary journey during his teenage years, starting out in the family business. With an insatiable appetite for learning, he diligently pursued various culinary courses, immersing himself in diverse cuisines. His culinary adventures in the southern region of Brazil encompassed a wide range of establishments, from hotels to wineries, cultivating a profound affinity for Italian cuisine. It was in this realm that he honed his expertise to an even greater degree. In January 2023, Diego made a direct transition to the kitchen of Auberge des Gallant upon arriving in Quebec.
Vignoble de Pomone
It was in 2009 that Sylvain planted his first vines.
He had secretly cherished this dream since his forties. He studied viticulture and surrounded himself with experts and made many new winegrower friends. In 2010, he built his own house, in 2013, the winery. During these constructions, he planted vines every year. The grape harvests were sold to several Quebec vineyards. Little by little, through hard work, passion and perseverance, the Vignoble de Pomone, in July 2019, began to sell its quality wines prized by the greatest restaurants and consumers.
Située à 45 minutes de Montréal, Le Vignoble de Pomone offre de vins de haut de gamme ainsi qu’une expérience vini-viticole hors du commun.
