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.

Super wines at a beautiful location

Friendly tasting room - usually not crowded. Surprisingly good wines! Or maybe not so surprising...the environment is very clean. Fun to walk through the vineyards.

Who knew Nova Scotia had decent wines? We stopped at this winery for a tasting. There is restaurant here if you are hungry. We tasted several of the wines, most of which are made at least in part from the Acadie grape, a hardy grape bred for the region’s harsher climate. We walked out with four bottles. My favorite was...

I am not a wine drinker but I loved the ambience! It is a beautiful spot and the hostess was a pleasure to talk to. She was very knowledgeable. I tried a couple of samples and fell in love with the mulled wine she had warmed up in the crockpot. The orchards were well looked after and they were tending... More

The food and service excellent. We did some wine tasting which was fun and very informative. We later took a walk throughout the vineyards and... More

We happened to be in the area, kind of in an out of the way place. We drove in & oodles of people were there enjoying lunch & the winery that we were taken aback. It was so worth the out of the way drive, beautiful. Loved our taste testing & bought while we were there. Since we were there... More

The sampling offered was generous. They have many interesting wines. We ended up buying wines and they shipped them inside a week across the continent. They... More

My husband and I went there last Sunday and the place is so beautiful. It is a big vineyard, truly it has been here for years what with its outstanding wine quality.

First time visitor to Jost Winery. Pleasantly surprised by the first class operation, Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Tasting area is well setup. Three tastings are complimentary, and a minimal charge of $2.00 for dessert wines or additional tastings, definately worth the "twoonie". Loved the maple wine. Server provided additional information on usage for food preparation, that was a nice touch,... More

We spent this Summer in the Maritime Provinces and found this winery in Nova Scotia on our way out and back to the states. We ended up spending the whole afternoon eating, sipping, tasting, wandering the grounds and visiting with the staff. The food, wine, staff, and the grounds were all just perfect. Highly recommend the experience. Little extras by... More
