Gaspereau Vineyards

Gaspereau Vineyards Located in the beautiful Gaspereau Valley seven miles from Wolfville. Once an apple orchard the vineyard was planted in 1996 on the ideal south facing slope followed by a successful harvest in 1999. The winery opened in 2004. At Gaspereau Vineyards, Jost planted Chardonnay, Riesling, Ortega and Vidal on the warmer upper part of a vineyard and varieties such as De Chaunac, L'Acadie, New York Muscat and Kuhlmann further down what is a fairly continual slope. “Chardonnay always makes it through the winter and it produces a decent wine,” Jost says. “But I like L'Acadie,” referring to the most widely planted white variety in Nova Scotia . In the Gaspereau site, the variety yields a wine that the wine shop staff describe as “dangerously drinkable.” The wine shows sweet, zesty citrus flavours with a dry finish
