Wineries

French colonists planted the first vines in Lunenburg Region in the early 1600’s and we’ve been perfecting the art of wine ever since. Take the time to visit one of our local wineries for a tour of a vineyard and a taste of the fine fruits of their labour.
Petite Riviere Vineyard

Petite Riviere Vineyard

Location: Beaches & Artisans

French colonists planted the first vine in this area in the early 1600’s. In 1994, Petite Riviere Vinyards revived the tradition. Wines from Canada’s oldest winegrowing region are now available at the winery, and at select retaurants in the area. 
 
PETITE RIVIERE VINEYARDS uses only grapes from the LaHave River Valley. Our poor rocky soil and long, mild growing season provide an ideal terroir for quality wines. The wines bear the name of this unique region, “Côtes de LaHave”.
