In 2004, one of Canada’s most experienced sparkling wine makers moved to Nova Scotia. His mission; to start Nova Scotia’s first certified organic winery. L’Acadie doesn’t use pesticides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers on any of their vines. They have been using organic practices since they first started planting in 2005. In 2007, they became Nova Scotia’s first certified organic winery.
The L’Acadie vineyard and gift shop are simple and clean. Both the shop and the winery are run on geothermal energy. While they are well known for their award winning traditional method sparkling, they also have a line of still wines. They make all of their organic wines using 100% Nova Scotia grown grapes.
