FIZZ FRIDAY TOUR
UNCORKING QUALITY – IT’S WHAT WE DO!
On our FIZZ FRIDAY wine tour, you’ll escape to wine country to learn all about our amazing wine industry, taste a wide array of wines, hear fun stories about the wineries from your tour guide and a two course gourmet lunch is also included!
The first stop is the oldest established winery of the region, Domaine de Grand Pre, for 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 a sparkling wine, wines made with the unique grape varieties of the region as well as a few surprises!
Afterwards, savour a two-course gourmet lunch at their restaurant Le Caveau – named one of the Top 20 winery restaurants in the world. Acclaimed Chef Jason Lynch creates an appetizer and two specially curated choices of entree based on food allergies/dietary restrictions provided.
Next you’ll visit Nova Scotia’s first certified organic winery and sparkling wine house, L’Acadie Vineyards. Here you’ll learn about the organic grape growing process and how Traditional Method sparkling wines (Champagne) are made while tasting four award-winning sparkling wines.
Then it’s onto Beausoleil Farmstead. This cidery/winery opened just recently in 2020 and is creating amazing vinous ciders – a movement that started on the west coast. Melanie Eelman blends Annapolis Valley heritage apples with Nova Scotia cool climate grapes to produce delicious wine ciders. Open by appointment only, we’ll have the place to ourselves!
