One could make an entire vacation just touring the wineries and breweries in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. Our friend lives right in the heart of the valley, so it took very little planning to spend some time in the vineyards.
These photos were taken at "Domaine De Grande Pré", which although was the first, turned out to be my favourite. We ended up bringing home 2 bottles of a fantastic tasting red called "Castel."
After our very informative tour and tasting, we took a walk through the vineyard to a park that overlooked Grand Pré.

This stuff was to die for, and I have asked for some to be sent my way at Christmas.
