Nova Scotia Wines Receive Award for Excellence
Four wines received the 2022 Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for Excellence in Nova Scotia Wines at a ceremony at Government House on Thursday, July 28th.
“I am proud of the quality of wine produced in Nova Scotia. It has been wonderful to watch the industry grow and contribute to the local economy,” said Lt.-Gov. Arthur J. LeBlanc. “The winemakers outdid themselves this year, demonstrating passion, innovation and pride.”
Wineries across the province submit up to three commercially available wines made with 100 per cent Nova Scotian grapes. An independent panel of experts participated in a blind tasting of all wines to select the top four submissions for the annual award.
-- 2013 Blanc de Noir Extra Brut, Avondale Sky Winery, Newport Landing
-- Riesling Sparkling, NV, Domaine de Grand Pré, Grand Pré
-- 2015 Blanc de Noirs, Lightfoot & Wolfville Vineyards, Wolfville
-- 2021 Tidal Bay, Mercator Vineyards, Wolfville
The award is administered by Taste of Nova Scotia and Wine Growers Nova Scotia in partnership with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor.
