Sophistication Well Beyond its Youth
By old world standards, Nova Scotia's wine industry is very young. But in those few years, it has gained a maturity, the broad knowledge and deep experience that will shorten the research and development curve for newcomers, and allow the industry to grow and advance with confidence.
Our wine growers are special people. Many came from other countries to build on the unique opportunities that this province has to offer. But, regardless of their roots or backgrounds, our winegrowers display common characteristics -- a passion for the land, a commitment to quality and a love of the artistry of the craft.
Nova Scotia wine is defined by its climate, its soil and its proximity to the ocean. No spot in the province is more than 67 kilometers from salt water. These unique conditions combine to help create distinct flavours in our wines.
Building on wines that exude a sense of place, our dedicated winegrowers have championed several changes that will only make the wine growing experience better over the next 10 years.Find out more about the benefits Nova Scotia offers
