The Wineries of Nova Scotia

When you walk through Nova Scotia Wine Country’s lush vineyards,
you’re never more than 20 kilometers from the ocean.

Situated on one of the cooler climate limits for vines, Nova Scotia’s soil and mesoclimates create some of the most distinctive premium-quality grapes in North America.

Our wineries have garnered international acclaim for their efforts and genuine passion. There are over 70 grape growers and more than 550 acres under vine in seven different regions across the province.

We have a long and rich tradition for growing grapes for wine dating back to the 1600s, when this was one of the first areas to cultivate grapes in North America.

The Winery Association of Nova Scotia was formed in 2002 to represent the interests of wine producers in the province, to serve as a voice for local industry and to promote the growth and development of local wines.
