Description: Jost Vineyards is situated on over 100 acres by the beautiful North Shores...
Jost Vineyards is situated on over 100 acres by the beautiful North Shores Sunrise Trail. With the largest and longest operating winery in the Atlantic region, the Jost family pioneered the industry, supporting the majority of today's independent vineyard operations. Their estate bottled whites, reds and specialties are lovingly crafted in the cellars and are available for sampling, sale and shipping from the winery store. Hike, bike and picnic with spectacular vistas of the vineyards and beautiful beaches of the Northumberland coastline. The area enjoys a mezzo climate with more days of sun than anywhere else in Atlantic Canada. Enjoy local cheeses with a perfectly paired wine on the licensed terrace and take a vineyard tour. If you are not able to make the drive, Jost wines can be discovered at most local restaurants, liquor stores and your favorite neighbors back deck.

Haven't been here since it has switched owners until now. It had been refurbished with attractive displays and a bar in the middle for taste testing and a sitting area on one side. There was a bridal shower going on outside with the ladies enjoying with wine which I'm sure was fun and beautiful right at the vineyard. Was unsure... More

There are a lot of long, winding roads to get to the winery - but it is well worth it! We were determined! The women on staff were very friendly and helpful (even gave us great, detailed and easy directions to Halifax). We sampled several wines (quite a variety) - even maple wine and ice wines. They have a beautiful... More

I am glad you took advantage of our "ship anywhere" policy. The owners travel often and have had wine shipped to them from all over the world and they wanted our visitors to be able to do the same. It is always nice to bring a little part of your vacation home with you. Enjoy your wine, and hope you... More

This is a small vineyard in Malagash Nova Scotia that boasts some terrific wines. I like the Jost Pino Grigo or the Contessa wines. Both of these are white. I have not tried the red but have it on good authority that it is very good as well. The vineyard will provide you a sample to taste. There are very... More

Thank you for your review. This year we received exciting news from the LCBO and they have purchased our Tidal Bay and Maple Wine. I think you would enjoy the Tidal Bay and the Maple Wine is a great substitute for dessert (or drizzled on vanilla ice cream), especially when you have guests. The next time you are at your... More

We took the sunshine trail on a whim, and we were glad it led us here. The tasting room was comfortable with a blend of modern and rustic elements and a great view of the vineyard. Although the service could be a bit more welcoming when guests enter, once you begin talking with them, they take good care of you.... More

The addition of Seagrape Cafe to Jost Vineyards has been a bonus not only for customers but the staff too. A new favourite of mine is the Rustic Pizzas that are available until 4pm. One can never go wrong with the combination of wine & food, especially the lobster sliders with a glass of Tidal Bay. Cheers! More

You have captured how I feel about our establishment. With the renovations it allows our customers to enjoy themselves whether it is rain or shine, winter or summer and our staff is always happy to 'talk' you through a tasting.

Fun afternoon. Staff knowledge of wine was excellent. The gift shop was so good I did most of my Christmas shopping in July. Beautiful green stemmed glasses. The wine tasting was the best. I am returning in July, 2015 with friends from Ontario.

Christmas shopping in July is always fun and one of my favourite gift items this summer is the Stack N' Go Vino glass, while travelling it comes in handy.
