Thanks to the warm waters and high tides of the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia is becoming an impressive and inventive wine region. It specializes in delicious sparklers and crisp whites, which pair perfectly with the local seafood. And if that doesn\u2019t get you, its charm and sea views will.\r\n\r\n\r\nShop\r\nWant to spin a good yarn when you get home? Gaspereau Valley Fibres offers wool from its flock of Cotswold sheep, as well as knitted goods, sheep milk soaps and local crafts. Housed in a bright, modern building, the Halifax Seaport Farmers\u2019 Market has a host of foodstuffs and local crafts from nearly 100 vendors.\r\n\r\n\r\nSee\r\nOn top of gorgeous foliage, there\u2019s a ton of food and wine events during harvest time at the Wines of Nova Scotia Fall Festival. There\u2019s also notable history around Wolfville, especially in Grand Pr\u00e9. It was from there that thousands of Acadians, the local French population, were deported by the British in 1755. A memorial of that event sits next to Domaine de Grand Pr\u00e9 and its solid restaurant, Le Caveau. To get a sense of the Bay of Fundy\u2019s powerful tides, which are the biggest in the world, sit on the deck at The Port Pub, in Port Williams. While there, enjoy a beer from Sea Level Brewing next door while you watch the water go up or down 20 feet of red clay banks. The tidal action warms the seawater, which creates a reservoir of heat that can keep vines free of frost well into November.\r\n\r\n\r\nEat\r\nAt the heart of wine country is Wolfville, a cozy university town with a charming, animated center. Dining can be a bit conservative, so embrace the old-fashioned charm of a classic menu in the wood-paneled dining room of the Blomidon Inn. In contrast, the Middle Eastern fare at Troy provides some of the most fun eats in town. In Halifax, Stillwell provides an exceptional selection of local craft beers and an eclectic menu that goes from fried chicken to okonomiyaki fries. Fancy some seafood? Posh diners head to The Five Fishermen, housed in a historic building by the harbor. Those on the hunt for Canada\u2019s best fish and chips go to John\u2019s Lunch, a simple lunch counter in Dartmouth, a ferry ride from downtown.\r\n\r\n\r\nDrink\r\nIn Halifax, the province\u2019s main town about an hour\u2019s drive from wine country, stop at Obladee. The wine bar boasts a great selection of local and imported cuv\u00e9es, as well as exceptional cheese and charcuterie plates. Apples, however, were a staple of the region\u2019s bounty well before grapes. In Wolfville, the Annapolis Cider Company is doing bang-up business, pouring well-crafted ciders in its new tasting room. The casual-chic Little Oak bustles with customers who seek snacks and seafood (ask for wine pairings). Specials like $20 off a $50 bottle of wine and a unique cocktail of the week are reason to keep coming back.\r\n\r\n\r\nFour Hour Tour\r\nVisit wineries along the winding valley roads, all relatively close to Wolfville, to taste the white wines from the Tidal Bay appellation that are the signature of the region. In addition to those, the occasional Riesling and Chardonnay can be found at places like Gaspereau Vineyards, L\u2019Acadie Vineyards, Blomidon Estate Winery and Luckett Vineyards.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nYou\u2019ll find reds at Lightfoot & Wolfville Vineyards, a new organic producer of Pinot Noir that\u2019s garnering national acclaim. Avondale Sky wins the prize for the most original tasting room, a 19th-century church transported across the bay via ferry in 2011 and repurposed as a winery. For a breath of fresh air between tastings, go up Cape Blomidon for views of the Bay of Fundy and the rolling fields and hills of the Annapolis Valley.
