Embrace the Chill with Red Wines

  1. Bold and Beautiful Reds: Nothing complements a chilly evening like a full-bodied red wine. Our top pick, the Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape, offers a robust blend of flavours, featuring notes of blackberry, liquorice, and spices. It’s the ideal companion for hearty winter meals or a sophisticated soiree.
  2. Local Favourites: Supporting local is a key part of our philosophy at Harvest. The Jost Vineyards Tidal Bay is a testament to the exceptional winemaking happening right here in Nova Scotia. Its unique character pairs wonderfully with seafood and poultry, making it a versatile choice for any winter feast.

Winter Whites: Crisp, Fresh, and Fabulous

  1. Elegant and Aromatic Whites: For those seeking a lighter yet flavourful option, we recommend the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. This vibrant New Zealand white wine dazzles with its lively aromas of citrus and tropical fruits. Its crisp acidity and fresh palate make it an excellent choice for sipping on a frosty evening or pairing with a variety of winter dishes. Whether enjoying a cozy night in or hosting a festive gathering, this Sauvignon Blanc is sure to delight your senses.
  2. Sweet and Cozy Dessert Wines: For a truly indulgent winter evening, try the sweet and delicious Lightfoot & Wolfville Icewine. This locally produced Icewine is a true gem, offering a luscious sweetness balanced by a bright acidity. With its rich flavours of tropical fruits and honey, it’s an ideal match for strong cheeses or decadent desserts.
