WINES OF NOVA SCOTIA

Nova Scotia’s soil and mesoclimates produce some of the most distinctive premium-quality grapes in the world in this unique maritime growing region. The small cool climate region is making its mark specializing in traditional method sparkling wine and a crisp, aromatic white blend, known as Tidal Bay.

 

The Tidal Bay designation ensures that all wines must be made from specific 100% Nova Scotia grown grape varieties, following a strict set of standards and annually approved by an independent blind tasting panel.


The province has six main growing areas: Avon River Valley, Malagash Peninsula, LaHave River Valley, Bear River Valley and the Annapolis Valley. The latter is the largest region and includes the Gaspereau Valley, a small offshoot at the eastern end of the Annapolis Valley set between two parallel mountain ranges along the shore of the Bay of Fundy.
