    A full night's experience
    For my wife's birthday, we made coming here an event. We enjoyed wine tasting, a fabulous dinner, and stayed overnight in the inn. We took a walk in the rain through the vineyard up to the viewpoint. All in all, a romantic and uber pleasant experience. Everyone we encountered was really nice. The wines are good, distinctive, certainly. Wait staff at the restaurant were fun to chat with.
    Thank you for leaving a review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our winery and hope to see you again soon. Cheers, Cacilia

    Among the Nicest Wineries in the Annapolis Valley
    To me, Grand Pre was among the nicest wineries in the Annapolis Valley. The wines offered were thoughtful produced and of excellent quality. Several types of tastings are available; my husband tried the red wines and I the white. Our favorites were the L'Acadie Blanc, Castle and Field blend. We were pleased with the tastings and our server was very nice. I appreciate that the tasting notes include the variety of grape, especially when the wine is a blend. The back label on the bottles also contains detailed information. I thought the prices for tastings were high, though quite reasonable for bottles. The facility is lovely and includes an inn and restaurant. If you have mobility issues, call upon arrival and they can direct you to appropriate parking. The hill from the parking lot is not an option for many.
    Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the wine tasting and the winery grounds and look forward to seeing you again. Cheers, Cacilia

    Lovely spot, sandwich a let down
    It is really wonderful eating outdoors at this winery. I enjoyed a good glass of Ortega. The fries my husband ordered were top notch. Our guests’ Reuben sandwiches looked very good. The one let down was the open faced chicken sandwich. I ordered it because the description said there would be red wine cranberries. Instead there were a few whole green grapes on top. It was bland and unexciting. Disappointing.
    Thank you for leaving a review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our outdoor patio. Your feedback on the open-faced chicken sandwich is valuable, and it's important for the restaurant to know when a dish doesn't meet expectations. We appreciate your feedback and hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future. Best regards, Cacilia

It was a pleasure to visit this winery. We liked the showroom, the wines we tasted were nice. I really enjoyed the little museum in the basement. Totally worth to visit.

We visited this winery for tasting and a fixed menu lunch. The restaurant is next to the winery. The food was good (average rating). I had the fish, and wife had the beef. The fish was over cooked and dry. The beef was much better and had a nice gravy.

Great tour here, steep little walk up a hill to get there though. Wines were okay, but the apple cream liquor was very good. Had lunch at their restaurant - Le Caveau, really good charcuterie board, had the mussels as well, but we did not care for those. Nice outdoor seating surrounded by greenery and the waiter was very good.

We came here for a tour of the vineyard and a wine tasting. The staff are so friendly and we had such a lovely chat while doing the tasting and loved learning about the wine in Nova Scotia! You have to go for lunch here too because the food is amazing!

While we are from B.C. and are very familiar with our Okanagan wines, we knew very little about wines from Nova Scotia. So it was a pleasure to visit this winery and sample grape varietals that we have never heard of before. The gal doing the pouring (pictured) was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Cheers!

Beautiful winery, but very loud inside and our server was not particularly interested in describing the wines. Be sure to try to avoid the loads of people arriving on the wine bus tours

Thank you for leaving a review. Summer is a busy time for us and sometimes our staff has to do multiple tastings at the same time. We hope that you can come visit us again, maybe on a less busy day. Cheers, Cacilia

Our group of friends stopped at this winery and did the tasting. Great value, six wines for $8 I believe. One was an ice wine and one was a Apple Cream Liquor. We enjoyed the wines and the lady that was serving them to us was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed our visit here and the service was great. We were here on a weekday and it wasn't really busy at the time. Much better to go when there are no big bus tours here. After we did our tasting and our purchases we walked up to the back of the restaurant and through the winery to a wonderful lookoff of Grand Pre and Blomidon. We enjoyed our visit and will be back.

Every time we visit the Valley, we stop into Grand Pre. The wines here are top-notch and dependable, but the apple-based beverages are my real favorites. I love the outdoor pergola area and the restaurant has never let me down. I also find interesting things in the gift shop. There is also a great walk through the wines to a UNESCO viewpoint that's a must for new visitors.

We stopped at Domaine de Grand Pre during our self guided wine tour. What an incredible place. We had a perfect day (weather) and location for our lunch was awesome.

We had the amazing Caesar salad with the charcuterie board and cheese.

Our hostess was fantastic!

Best stop of the day!
