It’s a modest peninsula embraced by the chilled Atlantic Ocean and draped in a veil of wispy salt air.

While you may expect Nova Scotia wineries to keep with tradition, we’ve been consistently delighted and have come to expect the unexpected. With unique packaging such as cans and bags, Nova Scotia wineries are putting their twist on the classics. From the Annapolis Valley to the Northumberland shore, our Nova Scotia wineries are producing some local gems, and we can’t wait for you to experience them.

Benjamin Bridge

Nestled in Wolfville on lands located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq First Nations, Benjamin Bridge winery has been producing exceptional wines for over two decades. The award-winning Nova 7 has been reinvented with its oh so popular 250ml can. Perfect for a Nova Scotian adventure or to be enjoyed as a single serving treat, Nova 7 is a coral blush wine with rosé accents. With floral and citrus notes, a subtle effervescence invigorates the palate with brightness and vibrancy.

LÜVO

Keeping on trend is another easy-to-go wine that we adore; LÜVO wines are a refreshing and natural reflection of our true Nova Scotian ingredients and East Coast spirit. LÜVO wines are unpretentious, refreshing, and easy to share. LÜVO Cold Press Red is red wine reinvented. It’s bold enough to be a true red but mellow enough to be thirst-quenching. This extra fruity, super approachable wine is made from Nova Scotia red grapes, cold-pressed right off the vine and before fermentation.

Jost Vineyards

Nestled in the gentle hills and sheltered coastal inlets of the Northumberland shores, Jost Vineyards is located just off the Sunrise Trail and only minutes from the ocean. New to their portfolio of wines is the Jost Rosé 3L bag. This stunning and convenient rosé entices your senses with aromatics of red berry fruit overlaid with tropical notes. This wine is sure to delight with a balanced sweetness and refreshing finish, making it the perfect summer wine to enjoy among friends and family.

Also, new to the Jost repertoire is LI’L FRIGG’R – a 200mL version of the Great Big Friggin’ Red. The same dark red wine blended from Nova Scotia’s cool-climate grape varieties and aged with Canadian oak and maple chips, which give it aromatics of caramel, mocha, toast, and maple. Even in its fun, small format, this supple, full, and easy-drinking dark red pairs perfectly with BBQ and hearty dishes. It is a toast to our great country, the celebration of success, and the sound of laughter. It’s friendship in a bottle.

GRANDPRE(TIDALBAY)

Domaine de Grande Pre

The oldest farm winery site in Atlantic Canada, Domaine de Grand Pré is in the heart of the Annapolis Valley. It is a place where European charm transports you back in time. Among our favourites is their Tidal Bay. It is the perfect complement to Nova Scotia seafood or to share with friends. Tidal Bay offers aromas of peach and candied ginger, with hints of minerality and fresh grass after the rain. While refreshingly crisp, the wine has a satisfying roundness that adds to the overall complexity.
