Jost Vineyards – Malagash, NS

Jost Vineyards is arguably the best-known name in Nova Scotia Wine. They are the second oldest NS winery and the longest operating and largest winery in Atlantic Canada. Jost is located in Tatamagouche. The winery is situated on more than 100 acres of property. In addition to growing their own grapes, they source grapes from around the province. They are the only NS winery using Cape Breton grown grapes!

Jost offers the most variety in their wine line-up. They also have the most affordable options in the province, with bottles starting at $9.99. In 2012, the Jost family sold the winery to Devonian Coast Wineries. The new owner is rapidly expanding production and plans to increase distribution across Canada.
