Annapolis Valley Wine

Nova Scotia is gaining recognition in Canada and around the world for high quality wines. Because the success of a vineyard is closely linked to location, and because climate plays such an important role in grape production, the Annapolis Valley is a perfect location.

“Nova Scotia’s wine industry rarely gets the attention it deserves. Though the climate is cool, several distinct grape-growing regions exist, with the Annapolis Valley as the historic home of viticulture. The Valley has the warmest summer temperatures and benefits from low precipitation levels.” (Appellation America)

The Atlantic Wine Institute, recently opened at Acadia University in Wolfville, supports the Atlantic wine industry from grape growth through wine production, and in the functional areas of business.

The Wolfville Magic Winery Bus–a classic British double-decker–will whisk you away for an incomparable day of tasteful adventure in the heart of Nova Scotia wine country. A North American one-of-a-kind, this hop-on, hop-off excursion visits four of the most storied and beautiful local wineries. You’ll experience firsthand the unique terrior that creates some of the most memorable wines in the world; learn a little about the region’s history and rooted connection with food; and best of all, get a taste for why this region has a reputation as the center of wine country in Atlantic Canada.
