The Wine & Dine TOUR
The perfect getaway in wine country! Spend the afternoon touring three intimate wineries for wine tastings and then savour a delicious three course dinner at a cozy wine bar!
After pick up from your Windsor or Wolfville area accommodations or residence, we’ll begin at 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 are made while tasting four award-winning sparkling wines.
Then you’ll visit 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 the unique grape varieties of the region as well as a few surprises!
Then it’s onto Avondale Sky Winery. This winery opened to the public in 2011 and is housed in an historic church built in 1836. Upon arrival, you’ll enjoy five of their “divine” wines while taking in the stunning atmosphere of the church.
The final stop is Winegrunt for an amazing dinner. Offering the broadest assortment of Nova Scotia wines of any wine bar in the province and exquisite, artisanal, locally-sourced food, this place will complete your Nova Scotia gastro-oenological journey. On Thursdays, the three-course dinner changes weekly and offers two choices for each course. A bottle of Nova Scotia wine of your choice is included. Or on Thursdays and Fridays, you can choose to order off the regular menu using your $100 voucher.
