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.

We went on a Saturday afternoon and after tasting a few of their wines and buying a few bottles, we went and sat on their brand new outdoor patio where we enjoyed a group of musicians who played from noon till five. Nice atmosphere and friendly service .

I visited with my 3 adult daughters. Our vegetarian meal request was welcomed and options offered. The wine sampling was fun and we totally enjoyed our time.

Was staying in the area and noticed a sign to the Jost Vineyard. I lightly consider myself a 'Niagara wine snob', as I really enjoy the wines from that region. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Jost wines when I tried a flight at the winery. And I also have to add that the tasting centre was... More

Very relaxed atmosphere some of the staff are very friendly. Great wine tasting experience and lots to choose from. A great way to spend 1 or more hours touring,testing or just sitting back relaxing with a glass of wine.

Huge building, Jost wineries have a very large selection of wines. As well they are generous with their tasting and lots of selection for tasting. They have deli purchases and souvenirs too. Their reds, which is all we taste tested are nice full bodied wines. There were people enjoying a lunch there as well, and the food brought out looked... More

Great atmosphere! The staff were very helpful and didn't mind asking my many questions. Very impressed with the premises and the food is awesome. The Vidal ice wine was definitely my favorite! Will be a repeat trip for sure on my next visit to Nova Scotia!

Jost has been one our favorite wines for a long time. Always wanted to visit. The staff is so kind and friendly. Lovely area to view and taste wines and enjoy a meal. Loved the Selkie wine with the Smoked Salmon and Cheese board. Delicious. Can't wait to return on a warm summer day. Highly recommended.
