Wolfville Presents: The Magic Winery Bus

Magic Bus 2012Imagine sitting on the upper level of a double decker bus, winding through country roads and taking in the endless view of the picturesque Annapolis Valley.

Throw in five potential stops to taste delicious wines and tour rolling vineyards, and your day might just become… magical. Well, you don’t need to imagine anymore, you can do it for real! On Saturdays and Sundays, from September 1 to October 14, the town of Wolfville will be presenting the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus.

That’s right, hop on and off a double decker wine bus for only $10/person (free for children) and wine your way through the Annapolis Valley where the bus will make a one hour loop to five different wineries – Muir Murray Winery, Domaine de Grand Pré, Luckett Vineyards, L’Acadie Vineyards and Gaspereau Vineyards.
