French colonists planted the first vine in this area in the early 1600's. In 1994, Petite Riviere Vinyards revived the tradition. Wines from Canada's oldest winegrowing region are now available at the winery, and at select retaurants in the area.
PETITE RIVIERE VINEYARDS uses only grapes from the LaHave River Valley. Our rocky soil and long, mild growing season provide an ideal terroir for quality wines. The wines bear the name of this unique region, "Côtes de LaHave".
