You’ll be picked up from your downtown Halifax hotel in the morning and taken on a 1-hour drive by comfortable vehicle to Annapolis Valley, located in the western part of the Nova Scotia peninsula.
Your guide will take you to three award-winning wineries for tours and wine tastings. Start at Planters Ridge Winery, a rustic winery in Port Williams that's housed in a 150-year-old restored barn. Soak up the beautiful countryside setting and tour the production rooms to learn about the winemaking process, from harvesting grapes to bottling wine.
Around midday, head to Restaurant Le Caveau, named one of the world’s top 20 winery restaurants, for a two-course gourmet lunch. You can then take time to shop at the winery’s boutiques with your wine tote bag, a complimentary take-home gift.
Head next to L’Acadie Vineyards, one of Nova Scotia’s only certified organic wineries. Taste their signature sparkling wines, which have won international fame, and learn all about organic farming.
You’ll also visit whimsical Tangled Garden, where herbs and fruit are transformed into mouth-watering jams, jellies, mustards and chutneys. Enjoy some sumptuous tastings and feel free to purchase (own expense) any treats that catch your eye – they’re sure to enhance any meal!
After your tour, you’ll be driven back to your Halifax hotel.Highlights
