Description

You’ll be picked up at 9am from your downtown Halifax hotel in the morning by Uncork Nova Scotia Wine Tours and taken to the scenic Annapolis Valley, located in the western part of the Nova Scotia peninsula.

Your guide will take you to three award-winning wineries for tours and wine tastings. Start at Blomidon Estate Winery, a boutique winery nestled on the shore of the Minas Basin near Canning. Immerse yourself in the beautiful seaside setting as you tour the winery and learn about the winemaking process, from harvesting grapes to bottling wine.

Around midday, head to Restaurant Le Caveau, named one of the world’s top 20 winery restaurants, for a two-course gourmet lunch. You can then take time to shop at the winery’s boutiques with your wine tote bag, a complimentary take-home gift.

To compliment your wine tastings, you’ll make your way to Fox Hill Cheese House, where you’ll indulge in a selection of the dairy farm's 20 fresh, locally made cheese varieties, including cheddar and Havarti.

You’ll also visit whimsical Tangled Garden, where herbs and fruit are transformed into mouth-watering jams, jellies, mustards and chutneys. Enjoy some sumptuous tastings and feel free to purchase (own expense) any treats that catch your eye – they’re sure to enhance any meal!

After your tour, you’ll be driven back to your Halifax hotel at 5pm for a rest before you begin your Evening Walking Food Tour with our partner Local Tasting Tours. Delight in an authentic Halifax neighbourhood brimming with some of the best restaurants and experience food from at least 5 restaurants! This tour begins at 7pm from the Oxford Theatre on Quinpool Road (a short taxi-ride from downtown Halifax) and is approximately 2 hours.
