Package: Taste The Valley Day Tour
Mon, May 2, 2016 to Mon, Oct 31, 2016
Located along Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy, the Annapolis Valley boasts some of the best soils in eastern Canada. The region is recognized as the 3rd most important fruit growing area in Canada and is the heart of Nova Scotia's agriculture. Wines produced here are gaining recognition in Canada and around the world for their high quality. But the micro-brewery industry is taking off by leaps and bounds here as well! Let Uncork Nova Scotia be your guide to discovering the wines, craft beer and culinary products of this fantastic region!
The first stop is our newest winery, Planters Ridge that is getting rave reviews from our guests not just for the great wine but also for the beautifully restored 150 year old historic barn that is now the winery. Uncork Nova Scotia guests will enjoy the tour of the production area followed by a wine tasting in beautiful barrel cellar with the owner of the winery.
Then visit Fox Hill Cheese House , where you’ll find something tasty from specialty cheddar to herbed havarti, as well as gelato!
Then it’s off to the nearby Port Pub for a Taster’s Tray of hand-crafted ales from the on-site micro-brewery Sea Level Brewing (or a glass of local wine if you aren’t a beer lover!). A delicious lunch made from ingredients from the local food producers is also included here.
Another wine tasting at a charming Gaspereau Valley winery follows lunch and you'll end the day at the enchanting Tangled Garden where herbs and fruit are transformed into mouth-watering jams and jellies (and much more) to enhance any meal!
When your tour ends, you’ll be returned to your downtown accommodations, perhaps with your purchases of the beers and wine you liked! You didn’t receive a complimentary tote bag to keep it empty, after all.
