Well we surely have plenty reason to pop the cork for Canada’s 150th birthday and that is exactly what we are going to do today with our featured wineries from different wine regions, Ontario, Nova Scotia and British Columbia.
This region hugs the Atlantic side of North America, and is one of the most challenging places to grow wine grapes in the world, but it works. Nova Scotia folks, now being touted by many as “Canada’s next great wine region!
We’re so looking forward to chatting with winemaker Jean-Benoit Deslauriers of the multi award winning winery Benjamin Bridge Estate Winery located in the Gaspereau Valley of Nova Scotia, here are a couple of quotes describing the winery’s bubbly!
“Mind blowing sparkling wines that would challenge any highly – rated French Champagne”
Anthony Gismondi for the Vancouver Sun
And Tony Aspler had this to say “They are without question the best sparkling wines I have tasted in Canada”
“It’s a sparkler that rivals Champagne…one of the best Canadian wines I’ve tasted. ”
