Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings and a fantastic place to visit & sample their wines before buying.
Visited here with my elderly mother this past holiday weekend. I had been here before the remodel. It is very lovely, but I had told my mother about the wonderful gift shop with unique things in it - oops, that's gone, but I understand, focus on the wine. Perhaps a small gift shop with all wine accessories would be nice.... More
Recently I visited 3 vineyards in the province of Nova Scotia and was familiar with Jost prior to the new owners and the remodel. I found the the winery to be very modern and clean but lacking warmth. The retail space was very limited. The removal of the gift shop was OK but I found a lack of seasonal products... More
You are right, the Annapolis Valley does have some wonderful wineries, one being our sister winery Gaspereau Vineyards, but I really hope that if you find yourself in the area again that you will give us another chance. Unfortunately the gentleman you mentioned is correct about sampling wine; there are guidelines we have to follow that the Liquor Inspector has... More
We did our first winery visit here, it was a nice clean place with plenty of opportunity to sample their different offerings. It was great to be able to go on a tour of the vineyard and see where they make the wine - unfortunately nothing was running but it was neat to see. Also as someone who is a... More
I feel honored to be your first winery visit but hope we are not your last! There are wonderful wineries across Canada and the more you visit & sample the more fun you will have naturally learning about wine. Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on TripAdvisor. More
I have visited more then 5 wineries and vineyards, and this is the newest and best looking winery so far. They rebuild the place 1 to 2 years ago, so the place is new and clean. Wine tasting place is very wide and well-constructed. They have so many selections of wine visitors can try. I also recommend to join the... More
My husband and I visited Jost Vineyard for our 9th wedding anniversary and I have to say we were completely impressed with everything. The location is beautiful, including a very nice deck area to enjoy a glass of wine outdoors. Inside the tasting bar and retail shop was stunning, a great ambiance, friendly staff, and you have to try the... More
Stopped in to check the place out and get some wine. The building inside and out is beautiful. It was awkward...no east coast, warm friendly vibes. I walked in and two people at the tasting counter stared at me. (I was the only customer) So I said Hi! And the girl replied, the other staff walked away. Quiet and serious.... More
The Vineyard had been sold and no longer the Family Owned Quaint Winery of last summer... It had been commercialized ... The wine is still wonderful but just not the same experience.
I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit the same as last time. We have been under new ownership for two years but it is still family run by Carl & Donna Sparkes, who are originally from Newfoundland. Carl and Donna are very passionate about wine and will bring us to the next level the previous owner... More
On one of our adventures we decided to take a trip out to the Jost Vineyard. Not knowing what to expect because we have never been much of Jost wine fans we were pleasantly surprised. We were warmly welcomed in and promptly offer free samples of there wines and soon foundcourselves purchasing a few bottles (more like 6) of wine... More
Wow! Thank you for the review, reading it made me want to go and order lunch from our new deli! You are right, a DD is nice to have because it is so beautiful on the patio it makes you want to stay all afternoon. Wine, food, and a great view - why would anyone want to leave? Cheers! More
We arrived in July for their summer wine festival. There was food, and wine available to purchase and local live music under the pergola. They have new big beautiful facility with places to sit inside and out. The tour was about 30 mins and showed a little bit of everything, they are the largest vineyard in NS. We learned some... More
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I am glad you enjoyed your visit. We are open year round and the drive along the shore can still be beautiful in the middle of the winter. If you find yourself back in Nova Scotia again I hope you have time to stop in for a glass of wine.... More
