The Vineyards

Some of the most important decisions we make each year are in our vineyard. The quality of fruit that we grow and buy from other Nova Scotia vineyards defines the wines that we ultimately produce. Our estate vineyard is located on the hills surrounding the winery and is comprised of NY Muscat, Reliant, Geisenheim 318, L'Acadie Blanc, DeChaunac, Vidal, and Leon Millet grapes. The south facing slope of the vineyard gets very good sun exposure which is ideal in our typically cool climate and short growing season. Our estate-grown grapes are supplemented by fruit sourced from local vineyards to ensure our products reflect the unique terroir of the Annapolis Valley. 

 

The Winery

With environmental impact in mind, our winery walls were built using insulated concrete forms (ICF). Building with ICF allows concrete buildings to be built stronger and more energy efficient than traditionally built wooden structures. We strive to make further environmental upgrades as time and money permits.
