I never knew that Canada had such a vibrant wine growing region

This was my first time visiting Nova Scotia and although I knew a little bit (or so I thought) about the area, what I didn't know was that it has a growing and quite respectable... read more

This was my first time visiting Nova Scotia and although I knew a little bit (or so I thought) about the area, what I didn't know was that it has a growing and quite respectable reputation as a wine region. I may not be a wine connoisseur but I can tell you that the whites were quite good and not... More

I visited this vineyard recently as I've come every year since they opened. Apparently it is not the same owners now and you can certainly see that. The atmosphere is completely different and the spirit seems to be missing. The old owners had great passion for the vines and wine they produced. We didn't see the new owners as they... More

I come home to Nova Scotia to visit every summer and each time we go to this vineyard. It's always a pleasure to visit - the staff are very friendly and often go out of their way. It's well worth the trip to Bear River for this hidden gem.

We stopped at the Annapolis highland winery on a whim on our way to Annapolis Royale and Cape Split! We were welcomed by an outstanding view of the grape vines and the very friendly owner. We tasted wine for about an hour, and then were allowed to explore the vineyard a bit on our own. We got to sit out... More

I was alone on a business service. I was told that tours were available always. A couple in front of me were being served and I hovered for nearly 20 mins before i got asked anything. I had come from Florida and was seeking to buy many bottles. Not anymore though. Dismal place

The tour was fun and interesting. The wine tasting part was awesome because every wine was good. I'm not sure if I would recommend someone to drive from Halifax just to visit the winery since it is quite small but if you are in the area, it is definitely worth it.

The winery is situated on top of a hill giving a very nice view. Tasting the wines (red, white & blush or rose is a delight. The manager gave us all as many tastes as we wanted. Really a nice flavours in almost all of them. I highly recommend this one!

A beautiful shop/tasting room, and could have stayed for awhile on the patio sipping in the sun and breeze. Find the winery in Bear River, a pretty area about 2 1/2 hours from... More

My sister and I had such a great time at this winery. Great variety of wine and generous tastings. Manager was very welcoming and really knew his wine! We both purchased several bottles and arranged to have them shipped home. Would definitely recommend checking this place out!

We were first introduced to Annapolis Highland Wines at the Farmers Market in Mahone Bay. My wife tried a couple of different wines and settled on Blushing Bride; which her an a girl friend of hers enjoyed when we go home. Based on that we decided to visit the vineyards on a recent trip to Bear River, while visiting our... More
