A passion for wine, food and travel brought Planters Ridge owners John McLarty and Lisa Law together more than a decade ago, and this same passion brought them to Nova Scotia in 2010. They immediately fell in love with the province.​

The two started to research the Nova Scotia wine industry and after several trips, spanning from Cape Breton to Bear River, they found the perfect spot - a 7.5 acre farm with a 150 year old house and barn, spectacular views and an abundance of history. ​

After a successful first harvest, John & Lisa expanded the acres of vines through the purchase of a premium vineyard - Basalt Ridge. The unique wine grape varieties from this new operation would add a level of distinction to the portfolio of wines produced by Planters Ridge.​

To this day, Planters Ridge continues to create unique and inspiring red, white and specialty wines, all inspired by the terroir of the Port Williams, Nova Scotia.
