A pleasant venue for a quick tasting. Wines being poured were ok but not outstanding. The attention and service was excellent. We purchased only a few bottles.

Wineries in Nova Scotia are trying hard and this one is succeeding! Nice L'Acadie grape wines and some surprises in the reds. Very nice Cab-Foch and L'Acadie Blanc. $15-16 a bottle range. In BC they would be $20 and in California they would be $30-$35.00....More

The white wines were all 6 to 7 years old and really showing their age. No fruit left at all. Basically just alcohol, very flabby. Definitely not adding anything positive to the wine scene in Nova Scotia. Do not get off the highway for this...More

The tour was okay to check out the different grapes, but the tasting is the best part. I wasn't disappointed even one style. 4 for $5, but I suggest trying more.

We enjoyed our visit here where we got a brief history and tour of the vineyards. We really enjoyed the 2013 Tidal Bay! A short distance from Halifax and a nice peaceful location!
