“Simon and the rest of the Blomidon Estate Winery team consistently craft some of the province’s finest wines. I am particularly enamoured with their sparkling wine and Chardonnay programs. Their top sparkling wines and Chardonnay would be comfortable matched up against their Champagne and Burgundy equivalents. 

While being of international quality, they also retain their Nova Scotia persona, by virtue of lively, crisp acidity. Their wines make a trip to Canning well worth it. I for one will be replenishing my cellar with a selection of them this summer.”

Awards

Lieutenant Governor-General’s Award for Excellence in Nova Scotia Wines – 2010 Cuvée L’Acadie

Reviews and Recognition

“[The 2011 Cuvée L’Acadie is]…showcasing a Champagne-like richness, just the right amount of interesting aged character and a level of finesse well beyond its $30 price tag.”

-Mark DeWolf, Nova Scotia’s Top Wines for 2014, The Chronicle Herald
