Package: Wine and Cheese Lovers Tour
Tue, Jun 7, 2016 to Tue, Sep 27, 2016
Stroll through vineyards, sample superb wines and delightful cheeses while being surrounded by the natural beauty of the Annapolis and Avon Valleys and Nova Scotia wine country. Let Uncork Nova Scotia be your guide to discovering the wines of the region with a tour that includes wine tastings and tours at three award winning wineries beginning Sainte-Famille Wines nestled in the picturesque Avon Valley for an informative tour of the vineyard and wine tasting with the owner!
Then we travel to our newest winery, Planters Ridge for a private tour of the production area and enjoy a wine tasting paired with a cheese board in the beautiful barrel cellar. The afternoon also includes a stop at Fox Hill Cheese House, where you’ll find something tasty from specialty cheddar to flavoured havarti, as well as gelato! To finish a great day in wine country, you’ll enjoy a wine tasting at Avondale Sky Winery, a gently sloping property on the Avon Peninsula, surrounded by the St Croix and Avon rivers. Enjoy a wine tasting in the old church from the 1830s that was converted into the wine shop.
When your tour ends, you’ll be returned to your downtown Halifax hotel, perhaps with your purchases of the wine you liked! You didn’t receive a complimentary tote bag to keep it empty, after all.
