Devour! The Vines – August 12 & 26
With a breathtaking view of the Bay of Fundy and Grand Pré Vineyards, prepare for an unforgettable evening – an intimate evening set amongst rows and rows of vines.
Upon arrival, guests will be greeted in style by the winery’s owner and a glass of traditional method sparkling wine before enjoying a unique, guided stroll in the summer sun through the vineyard to hear about the history and uniqueness of the winery and wines. As the sun hits golden hour, the group will convene on a small deck in the far corner of the vineyard for fresh Nova Scotia oysters. Finally, join Chefs Jason Lynch and Michael Howell as they prepare a four-course al fresco meal paired with award-winning wines and delicious short films curated by the team at Devour! The Food Film Fest.

About Devour! The Food Film Fest
“The films are splendid in their diversity.” ” The Bubble Bus tours are terrific. The All You Need is Cheese tasting tour to Planter’s Ridge was superb. We tasted six gorgeous Canadian cheeses each accompanied by a tasting of both wine and hard cider. Great fellowship, great value, great fun.”
