At Domaine de Grand Pré, we take great pride in making the finest Nova Scotia wines. We have worked hard to develop special Nova Scotian wines that are unlike any others in the region and whose crisp flavour comes from using only 100 per cent grapes. We have created unique varieties that are suited to the Maritime region. We grow specialty grapes that were developed for Nova Scotia climate and landscape. The results are apparent in our array of award-winning vintages, which wine lovers across Canada and around the world appreciate. – Description from AlexJelena

  • A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage.

  • The discussion about "natural wine" Vs "industrial wine" is really hot in Italy. After hundred of posts, articles and discussion i can resume my opinion: 1) i like good wines, 2) i don't like bad wines, i can just add i particulary love territorial good wines.Too much simple?There's some hot discussion around and not for all the issue is so simp...

  • If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too....   ... Here's your chance ...

  • Just a quick posting on a tasting we did last week.  We've been celebrating our tenth anniversary, and I stockpiled 2001s.  Good thing it was a strong vintage in so many places.  Of course, the 2001 Gran Reservas from Rioja are, in some cases, just hitting the market and are terrific values. We celebrated with a bottle we bought in the first cou... Read More

  • Thursday evening I will have the opportunity to taste a wine that was made twenty years before I was born.  I have never tasted a wine that old, and I'm very excited. The wine is a 1960 Chateau Bellevue Grand Cru St. Emilion.  My boss said the wine will likely be gone, but it will still be quite an experience. I'm sure many of you have tasted ol...
