Located at the headwaters of the historic Bear River is the town of Bear River 'Village on Stilts', where the tide rises and falls 25 feet.. twice a day! The restaurants, shops, and galleries are suspended over the tidal river on stilts. The winery is 800 yards from the village and is a historic converted 'working horse' barn from the 19th century. Owned in the last century by the Clarke Bros., it was used to pasture and foal their logging teams in the summer months. The hay mow and 4 story interior held 185 tons of hay providing winter feed for the teams that hauled out timber during the winter months from Lake Jolie to supply the huge Clarke Bros clothes-pin factory and sawmill.
Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: Peggy and I have been operating Bear River Vineyards since 1994. I am the winemaker and vineyard builder and Peggy manages the sales and shop. Together we work in the vineyard, garden and winecellars. Peggy was an art instructor at U Mass., and technical drafting and interior designer for several architectural firms in the USA. I was an antique dealer here in Nova Scotia for 42 years. I finished a second degree at Acadia University in Wolfville Nova Scotia when I was 50. Our winery development is a satisfaction for us both. It was a gentle learning curve.. 22 years of not rushing it. We focussed on the vineyard for the first decade and opened the winery in 2004 when we had proved that we could grow the familiar European grapes that most people recognize: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gamay, and this year... Merlot. After 22 years operating a growing winery business, the seasons, vineyard and winery develop a rythm that visitors enjoy as well. We both come from a scottish heritage of homecooking, self reliance and hospitality. We created our environment and our business with an eye to the conservation of natural and environmental resources and responsible winegrowing.
Why the Owner Chose Digby, NS, Canada:
Our vineyard is a famous historical vineyard site with vines first planted here in 1611. The sunshine and the steep south slope are typical of the best vineyards around the world.
