Nova Scotia Wine Country
Nova Scotia has a long and rich tradition for growing grapes for wine dating back to the 1600s, when this 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 – so try L’Acadie Blanc, Seyval Blanc, Lucie Kuhlmann and Baco Noir for the first time. Discover off-the-beaten-track country lanes that meander through hidden, beautiful valleys. Find a patio perched on the edge of a vineyard and enjoy a salad of fresh garden greens, local goat cheese or some of Nova Scotia’s famous smoked salmon. Try seafood chowder filled with the bounty of our sea and wash it all down with a glass of Nova Scotia wine.
Don’t leave Nova Scotia without trying our signature Tidal Bay - a wine with unique character. Tidal Bay brilliantly reflects the terroir, coastal breezes and cooler climate of its birthplace.
