Lightfoot vineyard & restaurant is an amazing spot, a definite highlight in Wolfville! Dine outdoors under the large white tent ( or on the grass on picnic tables if you have a pet with you) The view of the vineyards, Blomidon & the Minas Basin is fantastic! It is best to make a reservation & the food is definitely worth it. We were a group of seven & everyone had rave reviews of their food. The antipasto plate, the charcuterie & cheese, the chowder, the wood fired pizza, the wagyu burger & the tiramisu doughnut were all great! All staff were friendly & welcoming but Andrew , our server went above & beyond to guide us through choices & provide us with information on the immediate area & beyond. We definitely recommend at least one stop here!

The tasting area was not crowded and we got a seat quite quickly. Our server was pretty good; they were serving others or occupied in some other way but were present enough to engage with questions and suggestions. The service was good and the checkout person was very friendly.

I liked the Ancienne Chardonnay (2017) enough to buy a couple of bottles. I tried the cans of bubbly rose but they tasted like bad grappa to me. Some people really like the taste but I find it off and a little harsh.

The grounds are quite nice and the whole building is luxurious.

This is modern winery restaurant shop and tasting wine bar - beautifully designed spacious high ceilinged with outdoor terrace and fire pit with wonderful views over the estuary.
We had a wonderful fresh greek salad as we wanted a light lunch but there many other options on the menu.
The service was efficient professional and informative We were told that their wines were quite acidic due to the terroir locally but shared a glass of their pinot noir which was rather nondescript if you judge it from a French and New Zealand pinot noir perspective.

We stopped in for lunch and were promptly seated at a table that was much too small for four people and which became increasingly crowded as we ordered food and drinks. The table also wobbled and was regularly visited by flies so we felt somewhat uncomfortable throughout our meal. Our server was very pleasant but not well trained in the art of foodservice and unfamiliar with the menu content and ingredients. The food was served quickly and apart from the poorly prepared kale salad was of reasonably good quality. The highlight was a dish of peas (actually super snaps) and we can recommend the wood fired pizzas. As this is a winery suggest sticking to wine as my 6oz glass of cider was a flavourless disappointment and considerably overpriced. This experience did not match up to lunches we have enjoyed in other Wolfville wineries.

This vineyard just outside Wolfville offers a glorious meal under a white tent overlooking row upon row of vines. My wife and I had the three course lunch which - for just $35 Canadian a head - is indecently good value. We started off with a fresh salad followed by a great wood-fired pizza and then dessert. I can’t think of a more pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Highly recommended.

Beautiful location, excellent pizza and good service. We were not hopeful of a place to sit as we hadn’t made a reservation, and were pleasantly surprised when we got a table as soon as we walked in. The server was nice and polite and attended to us immediately.
Our pizza took a little less than 10 minutes and was bloody delicious, probably the best pizza we have had in whole of HRM. We ordered the Canadian - Crusty thin wood fired base, marianara sauce, mozza, onions, mushrooms and bacon. The signature tasting flight was okay as we have had better wine.

The only disappointing item was $10 for a 6 oz glass of an average cider.

The desserts were good too, we tried cannoli and panna cotta, both were light, fresh and not overly sweet.

Overall a very good experience, and i will definitely visit again.

Our first time at Lightfoot. Won't be our last!
This is such a fantastically gorgeous location with a picture-postcard view! We dined outside under the large carnival tent, sitting on the outside edge with a direct view across the valley to the picturesque Blomidon. We started with a shared charcuterie board. A definite do-again choice! The three of us each ordered a different pizza, one with a gluten free crust. All were perfectly done, with light and crispy crusts and lots of fresh ingredients. Such a terrific meal!

The Lightfoot family is amazing. We rented the wine cellar for our Parents anniversary and they were professional, kind and genuine through the whole process.

The grounds were stunning, the cellar was beautiful and the ambiance was truly magical.

Kori was a treat to deal with. We hit one hiccup and she approached the situation like a champion showing professionalism and compassion for our event and what this meant to our family.

Also a special thanks to James, Megan, Kane, & Jackie who delivered top notch service throughout the event. Lightfoot sets the standard for excellency in the Nova Scotia Winery and Event Planning Business.

After a week in the area and many winery visits, Lightfoot & Wolfville was our favourite overall experience. We had booked a private tasting followed by a lunch reservation which made the experience all the better not only because Hannah guided us through a lovely tasting in their private tasting room but because we could then flow straight out to lunch on the patio without waiting. It is a busy spot and I imagine if you ever plan just to stop by on the weekend and spontaneously do a tasting or have lunch, you will spend time waiting. Plan ahead! Our pizzas were delicious, the wine fantastic and walking around the property afterwards appreciated. All the staff we came in to contact with were very pleasant and helpful. The view is fantastic, the building/property design so smart, worth the visit. It will be on our list of must-dos the next time we are in the area.

Don't make the mistake of ever going here on a weekend. We had relatives from Cape Breton and BC with us---so 5 people in total. We had already visited Lucketts and Mercators in the area. We didn't want to eat but just have a wine tasting. We were told there would be a wait but not given any other guidance. People were all just standing around randomly. Eventually someone came up to the people ahead of us and said it would be at least an hour for a tasting. Not acceptable. It was a weekend and they should have been more prepared for tasting as it was a busy weekend in the valley. We still bought some overpriced wine but not impressed. I would recommend all the other wineries in the valley. This was our first time to this establishment and will probably be our last.
