These winery excursions will take you to the northern coast of Nova Scotia. With spa services, golfing, and whale watching available to pair with the great wines, it’s no wonder you will want to stay for the night.
Malagash Peninsula: While working your way up to the Malagash Peninsula, stop in at Shubenacadie for an adrenaline-inducing experience we call Tidal Bore rafting. It will really help drill home why the tides have such a huge impact on the wines and why we named the province’s signature white wine Tidal Bay. Tidal Bay is North America’s only appellation wine; this means any winemaker can produce this aromatic refreshing white as long as they follow certain regulations and it passes the blind taste test. Experience this exceptional style of wine for yourself at Jost Vineyards. The province’s largest winery and a pioneer of the industry. Their Seagrape Café is the perfect place to assess the theory of what grows together, goes together. The menu has several seafood options available to match with their coastal-inspired wines. Spend the night at the 5-Star Fox Harbour Resort, where you can wake up to enjoy a round of golf or take a beach day and swim in Atlantic Canada’s warmest waters. Visiting Jost Vineyards is also a great stopover if you are on a Maritime tour and making your way to the neighbouring provinces of New Brunswick or Prince Edward Island.
Take 2 days – With Cape Breton playing home to the Cabot Trail and over 26 hiking choices, of course, you will need to take at least two days to visit. Fortunately, the Gaelic inspired winery of Eileanan Brѐagha Vineyards is there to help quench your thirst after all that exploring.
