Discover Nova Scotia’s Wine Country

Monday, Jun 27, 2022 0


Nova Scotia has a long and rich tradition of growing grapes for wine that dates back to the 1600s, when the province was one of the first areas to cultivate grapes in North America. The climate and soil conditions in Nova Scotia favour unique and distinctive grape varietals. If your dream holiday includes road-tripping from one perfect boutique winery to another and chatting with passionate vintners about their art, we have got you covered – check out our top five recommendations to help you plan:


Sit back and enjoy an amazing eat & drink tour: what better way to experience the best Nova Scotia has to offer than to take a guided tour from one of its friendly locals. From private seafood picnics on secluded beaches to backdoor access to some of Halifax’s top restaurants and brewery tours at Nova Scotia’s most famous local brewery, Alexander Keith’s. Find out more.


Be sure to sample Nova Scotia’s appellation wine: Tidal Bay – a wine that brilliantly reflects the terroir, coastal breezes and cooler climate of its birthplace and is the perfect pairing for our fresh seafood. L’Acadie Blanc, Seyval Blanc, Lucie Kuhlmann, New York Muscat, and Baco Noir are others to include firmly on the list to sample on a patio overlooking a vineyard.


Go on an incomparable wine adventure aboard a traditional British double-decker bus: Magic Winery Bus is a one of a kind in North America.  Go day tripping to memorable Annapolis Valley wineries and experience unforgettable views and unmatched hospitality – all abord a British Double-Decker Bus! Guests are offered a professional guided tour sharing the region’s historical connection with food production and the world-class wine culture. Each day, the bus makes multiple departures from downtown Wolfville and transports guests to the participating wineries to enjoy wine tastings, small culinary delights and abbreviated tours. At the end of the day, the bus brings guests back to Wolfville to experience its downtown amenities.


Check out Nova Scotia’s newest boutique winery: 1365 Church Street Vineyard & Winery has recently began welcoming wine lovers with 10+ wines aged 3-5 years. Offering tastings while overlooking their vineyard, sample their whites, rosés, and reds while learning about the grape varietals grown onsite. Find out more.


Sample the province’s most widely-acclaimed wine: Benjamin Bridge’s Nova 7 sparkling by Benjamin Bridge Vineyards – available in UK – has been garnering accolades for years and is a fan favourite with the locals and internationally. Enjoy an intimate tasting or tour to see what the buzz is all about.
