WINE WEDNESDAY TOUR

 

UNCORKING QUALITY – IT’S WHAT WE DO!

On our WINE WEDNESDAY tour, you’ll escape to wine country to learn all about our amazing wine industry, taste a wide array of wines, and hear fun stories about the wineries from your tour guide! For food lovers, a two course gourmet lunch and a wonderful culinary stop is also included!

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, 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 our cool climate grapes that set us apart from other wine regions.

Then, 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 it’s onto Planters Ridge winery for a private tour of the cellar to explain how wine is made and then to the stunning barrel room to talk about how barrels impact the taste of wine. You’ll taste award-winning wines during the tour.

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.

Our final stop is the enchanting Tangled Garden that spans over 5 acres. Inspired by the image of a sprig of thyme suspended in shimmering jelly, Beverly McClare has created a must-stop destination located in the heart of the Annapolis Valley. Marrying her artist’s eye, foodie’s palate and a farmer’s capacity for hard work, she created Tangled Garden that is recognized for its mystical ambiance and award-winning jams, jellies, and herb liqueurs. Foodies and gardeners will love this place!
