Westjet Magazine: Nova Scotia’s Best Wine Regions (and Where to Sip)

Published: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

North of the Annapolis Valley and bordering the Northumberland Strait, the award-winning Jost Vineyards, situated on the shores of the Malagash Peninsula in the Northumberland Shore region, is the longest-operating winery in Nova Scotia. Earlier this year, the winery released Great Big Friggin’ Red to toast Canada’s 150th birthday. With aromas of spice, maple and ripe red fruits, the wine is perfect for pairing with a juicy barbecued burger. Nearby, Fox Harb’r Resort, an oceanfront resort owned by Ron Joyce (co-founder of Tim Hortons), recently planted 10 hectares of vines on the property in partnership with Devonian Coast Wineries (owners of Jost). The first harvest is expected in October with bottling beginning in Spring 2018.
