Planting estate Seyval Blanc


As many of you know, we established L'Acadie Vineyards in Gaspereau Valley in 2004 and started planting in 2005 with exclusively L'Acadie Blanc for organic sparkling wine. This decision has stood the test of time with numerous international awards for our Estate Prestige Brut from those first blocks, a classic terroir/style matching success. We later planted Leon Millot for our appassimento red program, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. This year we planted more Seyval Blanc, adding to our interplanted Seyval vines in a L'Acadie Blanc block, to bring citrusy zing notes to our Tidal Bay blend. Read about the Nova Scotia winery appellation Tidal Bay.

Here's a little background on Seyval Blanc,

  • citrus and zingy acidity - used for sparkling in England, also in Finger Lakes region of New York and Oregan.
  • early ripener, good producer and suited to cool climates
  • a hybrid grape, bred in France by plant breeder Bertille Seyval


Read more on Wikpedia, Seyval Blanc. And here's a short video watering the new vines.
