Product category: Annapolis Valley

NEW | Riesling

Handcrafted from 100% Riesling grown along the Bay of Fundy, this vintage displays the signature brightness of our maritime terroir, as well as a dense and lively structure.

Following BB Club small lots from ‘12, ‘13, and ‘14 this Riesling marks the first commercial itieration. The wine displays high acidity and powerful aromatics, which perfectly parallel the quinessential elements of our white wines. Taken from three distinct vineyard sites along the Bay of Fundy, each lot comes from it’s own microclimate with soils ranging from gravel and clay, to deep sandy loam. To accentuate the singular yet unifying qualities specific to these sites, the wines were wild fermented, relying on indigenous yeast strains from the unique sites to allow for the natural expression of each vineyard.

Serve chilled. Enjoy with seafood or savour on its own.

Vēro

Derived from veritas, the Latin word for truth, Vēro by Benjamin Bridge speaks the truth of our land. It displays the most celebrated elements of this region’s viticulture — inviting floral aromatics, crisp acidity, and fresh minerality capture Nova Scotia’s quintessential terroir. This elegant white wine is quite simply a true reflection of place, and complements our signature red wine, Taurus.

This 2014 vintage is handcrafted from 35% Chardonnay, 20% Ortega, 20% Vidal, 15% Riesling, and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Vēro stands as our dry classic; an elegant white displaying the wonderful characteristics celebrated in our grape-growing region – inviting citrus aromatics and striking minerality

Extremely versatile. Serve chilled. Savour on its own or as the perfect match for Nova Scotian seafood such as Malagash Oysters, Digby scallops, Fundy lobster and Sambro haddock. An ideal accompaniment to light summer fare and appetizers made from fresh local greens and vegetables.

Cabernet Franc Rosé

The Cabernet Franc rosé varietal has a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest rosé wines, many of which come from the Loire Valley of France. By combining Cabernet Franc’s proven elegance with the refreshing qualities of the Annapolis Valley terroir, we have created an exciting new wine with complex flavours.

Driven by our philosophy of pushing both viticultural and winemaking boundaries, we are extremely proud of this 100% Cabernet Franc rosé – a Nova Scotia first. Like other sensitive vinifera varietals critical to Benjamin Bridge’s wine program, supportive growing conditions are an essential but unreliable element.

Thanks to our local grape-growing partners, who are committed to expressing the freshness and distinctiveness of our maritime climate, the result is another standout vintage.

Serve chilled. Enjoy with seafood or savour on its own.

About us

Company details

In little more than a decade, Benjamin Bridge has distinguished itself by its dedication to time proven techniques, expert guidance, and most importantly its acclaimed, distinctive wines.

The Benjamin Bridge vineyards are located in the heart of the Gaspereau Valley on the Bay of Fundy, where the cool climate bears an uncanny affinity with the Champagne region of France. Our experienced winemakers work in collaboration with international experts to produce world-class Méthode Classique sparkling wines and limited edition luxury wines.

Our innovative sparkling wines display the hallmarks of classic prestige cuvées from Champagne, but with a Nova Scotia signature. “They are, without question, the best sparkling wines I have tasted in Canada,” says Tony Aspler, Canada’s most renowned wine authority.

Our collection of hand crafted fine wines, including perennial sell-out Nova 7, together with our sparkling wine program, have helped raise the profile of Nova Scotia terroir and its winemaking in Canada and internationally.
