Bus excursions visit four wineries in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley

  • Print

WOLFVILLE, N.S. - Nova Scotia wineries, concentrated in the Annapolis Valley, have something that their bigger cousins in Ontario's Niagara Region and B.C.'s Okanagan Valley lack: seaside proximity.

A vineyard visit in Nova Scotia wine country means you're never more than 20 kilometres from the ocean, says the Winery Association of Nova Scotia.

The Wolfville Magic Winery Bus offers hop-on, hop-off excursions, Friday to Sunday, to four Annapolis Valley wineries until mid-October. The double-decker bus departs from Wolfville's downtown visitor information centre.

On the circuit are Domaine de Grand Pre, founded in the late 1970s and Nova Scotia's oldest winery; Luckett Vineyards overlooking the Gaspereau Valley; L'Acadie Vineyards, an organic operation known for its sparkling wines; and Gaspereau Vineyards, a boutique winery just outside Wolfville.

Vineyard tours, wine tastings and food pairings are offered at each stop.
