New Event Celebrates Nova Scotia Wine with a Picturesque Twist

Wolfville, NS – Imagine being chauffeured through the picturesque and aromatic Annapolis Valley during harvest season to experience award-winning Nova Scotia wine in a charming, traditional British double-decker bus. See Nova Scotia wine country from a new perspective and enjoy some of the most distinctive, premium quality grape varietals in North America.

During the Nova Scotia Fall Wine Festival, five wineries that surround Wolfville have teamed up with the Wolfville Business Development Corporation (WBDC) and the Town of Wolfville to launch the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus tour on Saturdays and Sundays from September 1st to October 14th.

Leaving from Wolfville’s downtown at 10:30am, and departing again on the half-hour until 3:30pm, guests will have the opportunity to visit five wineries each offering a distinctive Nova Scotia wine experience. Be it tastings, vineyard tours, musical entertainment, childrens’ activities, picnic packages, food and cheese pairings, grape stomping there will be something for the entire family.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit Muir Murray Estate Winery, Domaine de Grand Pré Winery, Luckett Vineyards, L’Acadie Vineyards and Gaspereau Vineyards.  Stay an hour or stay longer, the double decker bus will make one hour round trips to either take you to your next vineyard destination or back to Wolfville to enjoy a wide array of merchants, eateries and restaurants along with renowned accommodations to round out a wonderful visit to Wolfville and area.

“There is tremendous potential to grow our local wine industry and share it with the world.  Wolfville is surrounded by the best vineyards and wineries in Atlantic Canada; it is at the heart of an emerging wine tourism destination.  This new and innovative wine experience will be like no other and we look forward to welcoming our visitors and local residents on the Magic Winery Bus,” said David Hovell, Executive Director, WBDC.

Tickets for the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus are $10 for adults (children are free) and can be purchased when boarding the bus in Wolfville (cash only).  For more information visit www.nsfallwinefestival.ca or join our event on Facebook at /TOWNOFWOLFVILLE/EVENTS.
