One of the good things about being a sparkling wine producer is that there’s always something handy for a celebration.
L’Acadie Vineyards, in the Gaspereau Valley, has won a silver medal at an international sparkling wines competition in Dijon, France.
More than 550 wines from 24 countries were evaluated by a panel of 100 judges during Effervescents du Monde at the Lycee Le Castel culinary school, and L’Acadie’s 2007 Prestige Brut was the only entry from North America to win a medal.
The ’07 Prestige Brut has now won seven awards, and is available at selected NSLC stores, private wine stores, the Wolfville Farmers’ Market, and directly from the winery for $39.99.
L’Acadie Vineyards was established by winemaker Bruce Ewert and his family, and was the first winery in Nova Scotia to release traditional method sparkling wines.
