Nova Scotia Wines
Nova Scotia’s vines are grown all across the province, from the rocky coastline of the South Shore, to the fertile soils of the Annapolis Valley, all the way to the highlands of Cape Breton. No matter where our wines are planted, they’re rarely more than a few kilometres from the water. It’s this cool climate and ocean influence that gives Nova Scotia wines their aromatic and lively palates, which pair perfectly with the local seafood we’re known for.
A Taste of Tidal Bay
Like Port to Porto or Champagne to, well, Champagne—Tidal Bay is considered Nova Scotia’s signature white wine. Wines labelled as Tidal Bay follow strict production standards and must contain 100% Nova Scotian grown grapes. While each producer’s blend of these wines is slightly different, Tidal Bay wines reflect our province’s terroir and share a familiar crisp & light taste profile. Learn more about Tidal Bay wines and explore the newest vintages.
