#Fizz Friday TOUR
Nova Scotia is quickly becoming known for its sparkling wines and have won critical acclaim and awards around the world for them. New for 2018, this special tour celebrates our fantastic sparkling wines and you’ll learn all about the hands-on production of these wines. The tour also includes a visit to a popular cider house!
Begin with a “grape to bottle” tour at L’Acadie Vineyards. This was the first certified organic vineyard and winery in the province so you’ll learn all about organic grape growing and how it differs from conventional growing. L’Acadie Vineyards is also the leader in Traditional Method sparkling wines. Find out about the hands-on process of how they are produced them while enjoying a flight of 5 sparkling wines!
Then you’ll visit our newest winery of the region, Lightfoot & Wolfville Vineyards. Certified organic and grown according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, their wines include classic Burgundian-inspired Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Rieslings and other German-styled white wines, as well as Traditional Method sparkling wines. Enjoy a private tour of the facility and a private wine tasting before sitting down for a wood-fired pizza and a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the vineyard and the spectacular Minas Basin where the highest tides in the world occur.
Finally, you’ll visit Annapolis Cider Company! They’re all about local. All the apples are grown in nearby orchards, pressed into juice down the road, and fermented into cider at their cidery in charming downtown Wolfville. Enjoy a private cellar tour to learn about the cider-making process and then try 3 of their ciders – the popular Dry & Crisp, the sweet Classic and the ever-changing Something Different!
Fill up your complimentary wine tote bag with wines and cider.

“Go North ……. and have a fabulous time!” Reviewed 12 July 2014
My wife and I visited Nova Scotia for the first time. We enjoy wine and wanted to tour what NS has to offer. We scheduled our tour with Go North. We toured the Annapolis Valley vineyards and tasted a white Chardonnay type wine from L’Acadie grapes. Very nice. We had lunch at the winery that was absolutely incredible. Most importantly, our tour guide Laila North has the knowledge of a well seasoned sommelier plus great knowledge and history of the area. Well, well worth the trip.
