Here at Bear River Vineyards we are proud to present our 100% estate grown wines.  Produced through gravity fed systems and developed with minimal intervention, our wines are uncomplicated, allowing our terroir to be naturally expressed.  We offer classic vinifera varieties along with some hardier cool climate hybrids.

Black Fly Pinot Noir 

The classic Burgundian red grape.  Bear River Vineyards was the first winery in Nova Scotia to grow and bottle this delicate grape.  A light and easy red.  Limited quantities of our 2015 vintage are still available. 

 

Meguma Terrane Riesling  

Our vineyards are perfect for this German vinifera.  Our steep slopes and rocky slate soil must make it feel at home.  While Rieslings can vary in sweetness we make ours dry and crisp.  Both our 2015 and 2016 vintages are available in the shop.

 

Rose Eh? 

Don't let the name or delicate colour fool you. This is a serious wine. Dry and invigorating. Primarily made from Pinot Gris but enhanced with some red to impart it with both a subtle hue and a touch of substance.  Both our 2015 and 2016 vintages are available for vertical tasting.

 

Baco-Foch  

This award winning wine dry red wine is a field blend of the hybrid varieties Baco Noir and Marechal Foch. They come together wonderfully to produce a smooth and slightly spicy taste and feel.  We have our 2015 vintage available for tasting.

 

Compenso 

This award winning wine is no longer in production so stock is limited.  A red field blend that has been infused with estate grown aromatics including black currant.  Rich and full, it is the perfect accompaniment to chocolate.

 

1611 Signature Blend  

As room was made in the vineyards for more vinifera the decision had to be made to no longer grow one of the hybrid grapes in this three varietal red blend.  Lucie Kulhmann served this wine well.  Enjoy this exceptionally smooth and award winning red before it's gone for good.
