Mercator Vineyards


Situated on a bluff above the historic Acadian dykelands, Mercator Vineyards sits at the point where the Cornwallis River enters the tidal bay of the Minas Basin. The vineyards are located just to the east of the town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia and adjacent to the Grand Pré National Heritage site.

Named for the pioneering cartographer whose map was the gold standard for sailors in the age of exploration, Mercator Wines challenge our perceptions of “local” wine. Mercator takes us into a world of premium, estate-select and cellared wines that can rival the best the world has to offer.

Mercator wines are handcrafted from the finest Nova Scotia grapes. Our first white wine, Mercator Lat 45°N White, took the coveted Chairman’s Trophy Award in the Ultimate Wine Challenge’s White Blends – North America category in New York in June 2014. The Judges gave it a score of 92, rating it excellent and highly recommended.

Mercator Vineyards is devoted entirely to growing exceptional grapes and making extraordinary limited edition wines. In the not too distant future we will be inviting Devonian Wine Club members to exclusive events on the estate property.
