We had a "standard" tasting at Grand Pre, which included L'Acadie Blanc, Rose, a dry Muscat, Leon Millon, Castel, and a choice of either Pomme d'Or or Cream Liquor. The staff member directing our tasting was very knowledgeable, and as we discussed oenology, he offered tastes of several other Grand Pre offerings, including a reserve baco noir that was quite delicious.

The grounds are extensive and lovely, and visitors are allowed to walk through the vineyard. The tasting room is fairly slick, with neon and stainless steel elements, and god help you if you arrive at the same time as a tour group or visitors milling around waiting for a tour.

The shop was packed when we arrived, but cleared out almost immediately so we had a nice experience.

We went over to Grand Pre from the "other side" of N.S. to do this tour and than have dinner at their dining room Le Caveau (see write up under Le Caveau).
The vineyard is lovely and the retail shop to taste and buy wines was most enjoyable. We tried several tastings, and enjoyed most of them.
Guided or self tours.

We had a few hours and went to the last tour of the day. a lot of the same that you'll hear on any winery tour, but it was great to sample some local wines. very friendly and laid back.

We made a special trip to the Annapolis Valley for a little wine tasting and found this Grand Pre gem. Nice staff and tasting room. Guided and self directed walking tours are available. Would recommend a stop here for sure.
