Blomidon Estate Vineyard
The Blomidon Estate Vineyard is located on the shores of the Minas Basin, near Canning, in the Annapolis Valley. Many of the blocks were planted in 1986, giving us some of the oldest vines in the province. With 18 acres of vines spread over the 25 acre property, the site benefits from its close proximity to the water, as the tides and sea breezes moderate the temperature and help prevent disease. The soils are sand and loam, offering excellent drainage and the gentle, south-facing slope provides for excellent sun exposure. The Blomidon vineyard is planted with established Baco Noir, L’Acadie Blanc, Seyval Blanc and Chardonnay, with newer plantings of Riesling, New York Muscat and some experimental Vitis vinifera varieties.
