  • Stewart Creaser and Lorraine Vassalo had a dream and it came true. They created a lovely winery off the beaten path and on the outskirt of the Annapolis Valley. They moved an old barn and a church to the current location of Avondale Sky Winery. While the wine tasting and several awards speak for themselves. The story gets you to drive out of your way, but the Tidal Bay wine gives you the memory.
  • Went 2 years ago and we were not impressed with the wine. The story of the winery and the building were great so not a wasted visit. Two years later and WOW the wines are fantastic. Staff is friendly and really knowledgeable about the wines. We bought a case of various wines and a bottle of their ( port ( New Port) ) you must try the port with chocolate, so good.
  • Quaint little winery where the main building is a converted church. On-site restaurant is a must try with great service, excellent food and a nice patio.
  • Beautiful Complex, great Wine, great staff.
  • Stewart and Lorraine: Just want to share our pleasure with our first bottle of Avondale Sky wine. We are visiting NS for Christmas from our "dry" arctic town and wanted a nice white wine to go with our fresh NS haddock. The clerk at the NSLC recommended the Avondale Sky-Tidal Bay which enhanced our dinner. A light, refreshing wine....it would be too easy to sit and sip a couple bottles. Congratulations on the winery. Looking forward to trying others before we return north. Cheers! John and Ruby Watson
