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.

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

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

We first visited the Jost Winery many years ago when they first opened and we had the opportunity to chat with Mr or Mrs Jost. Later came Christian Jost and added his remarkable talents. Most recently it has been purchased by another talented couple from Newfoundland who have made also made many improvements. When you consider the skills and acquired... More

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.

Our group of 10 showed up and was helped by pleasant and knowledgeable staff. You get 3 free tastes and then can purchase by the glass or additional tastings. The surroundings were very nice. The tasting bar was shaped like an old wine cask, very creative. They were happy to take a picture of our group for us. Wish I... More

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

We have taken all of your comments into consideration. We started with reminding all of staff to never assume that customers know that we offer samples of wine and are currently looking at wine accessories for the store. I hope you and your mother are able to visit us again. Thank you for your review. 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
