Tangled Up In Wine TOUR
Get Tangled Up In Wine!
This tour begins at our oldest family operated winery in the province, Sainte-Famille Wines. Nestled in the lovely Avon River and situated on the site of an Acadian settlement from the 1600s, the property is known for its warm climate that produces fruity white wines and rich reds. On the tour of the vineyard, you’ll see the dykelands created by the Acadian settlers and learn about how the grapes are grown. There are some unique varietals grown in this vineyard such as Siegfried and Cabernet Foch that you may sample in the tasting following the tour. You may also be treated to their amazing Blueberry wine made from local blueberries!
Next you’ll visit Avondale Sky Winery – a truly divine experience! The winery is housed in a church built in the 1830s that has been beautifully transformed into their tasting room. Sample a variety of their award-winning wines before sitting down on the patio overlooking the vines to enjoy a light bistro-style lunch with wine at their restaurant D’Vine Morsels.
Finally, enjoy the sights, sounds and smells at the whimsical Tangled Garden! For over 20 years, this property has been a hidden paradise for locals and visitors alike. You’ll have a guided tour of the gardens where you’ll see an immense variety of herbs and fruit being grown for their products made on-site. After the garden tour, sample a selection of products including jams, jellies and liqueurs all made from the herbs and fruit in the garden. Then sit down in the quaint Tea Room for a delightful dessert and tea.
Make sure to fill up your complimentary wine tote bag along the way!
