The tour starts with an entertaining story of how the Nova Scotia wine industry came to be on our way to the first stop, Domaine de Grand Pre. This is the oldest established winery of the region. Here you’ll have a private tour of the vineyard to learn how the vines are maintained. The vineyard is situated overlooking the Minas Basin where the highest tides in the world occur. A private wine tasting follows that features the unique grape varieties of the region as well as a few surprises!
Cross the cobblestone courtyard to Restaurant Le Caveau, where lunch is served! This is one of the world’s top 20 winery restaurants! Feast on a two course gourmet lunch created by the chef (based on food allergies/dietary restrictions provided) that might feature line-caught Halibut, Arctic Char, Scallops, Coppa Steak, Moroccan Chicken and much more! Vegetarian and Vegan options are available.
The next stop is at Lightfoot & Wolfville Vineyards for a vineyard walk perhaps encountering their baby doll sheep or Highland cattle and then a tour of their barrel cellar all while enjoying their wines.
Finally at Mercator Vineyards, relax in the century old farm house tasting room and enjoy a flight of wine paired beautifully with locally hand-made gourmet chocolate.
