Nova Scotia Wine Country

Nova Scotia has 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 ice age nearly 2 million years ago shaped our unique land and soil, and over the centuries, the moderating effect of the Atlantic Ocean has created vineyards unlike any others in the world. It’s only been recently though, over the course of the past 25 years, that our modern wineries have especially flourished.
