Our approach for Tidal Bay is an organic vegan wine and dry. This is our second vintage, and our inaugural release last year was described by wine trade as a “gamechanger”. Since Tidal Bay is an appellation wine to showcase Nova Scotia terroir, we choose to highlight our own unique estate terroir – ancient seabed L’Acadie blanc from our Gaspereau winery. The first organic vineyard in Nova Scotia and the first Biocyclic Vegan farm and winery in North America, from soil to glass.

Certified Organic and Certified Biocyclic Vegan, from soil to glass

Tasting Notes
Mark DeWolf, sommelier, “#gamechanger having L’Acadie Vineyards part of the TB community” "This marks the inaugural vintage of Tidal Bay for L’Acadie Vineyards. Certainly, L’Acadie Vineyards version pushes the stylistic boundary by being very crisp, lean and mineral-edged. If you want a local white for oysters, this is it" Susan Lane, sommelier, "L’Acadie Vineyards ~ BC native Bruce Ewert is a groundbreaker in NS winemaking. Bruce and his NS born wife Pauline moved back to NS in 2004 with the intent to create world class sparkling wines. L’Acadie is Nova Scotia’s first certified organic vineyard and also the first to receive international recognition for their traditional method sparkling wine. I personally believe that L’Acadie’s TM sparklings could be mistaken for Champagne in a blind tasting. This is Bruce’s first Tidal Bay. Bruce highlights the unique ancient seabed soil of his estate vineyard, so rather than a fruit forward Tidal Bay, Bruce has created a mineral edged wine that would be delicious served with raw oysters. At 1.7 grams residual sugar/ litre, this may be the driest Tidal Bay yet. Most Tidal Bays are anywhere from 5.6 -14 g /litre. It makes me hope that Bruce will break with tradition and be permitted to produce the first sparkling Tidal Bay. Wouldn’t that be amazing?"
