You might be surprised to learn that Nova Scotia's rich tradition of growing grapes for wine dates back over 400 years, making the Province one of the first areas to cultivate grapes in North America. The distinctive climate, soil conditions and surrounding landscape, make for unique and distinctive grape varietals unlike anywhere in the world.
