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.

2016 Black Fly Pinot Noir

Our vineyard boasts the first Pinot Noir vines planted in Nova Scotia.  This delicate French varietal produces a light and fruity red with a dark berry aroma and a smooth finish with a hint of spice.

2017 Meguma Terrane Riesling

Our flagship white is done in the "trocken" style (German for dry) so don't think sweet for this Riesling!  This wine sparkles with a bright mineral finish.  The lively acidity pairs well with cheese and is excellent with seafood entrees.

2015 Baco Noir / Marechal Foch

2017 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition Medalist

Our benchmark red is a field blend of two French hybrid grapes.  Deeply coloured, it combines the spicy fruit and berry taste of Foch with the smooth, smoky finish of the Baco.  Excellent on its own or paired with roasted meat dishes.

2016 Greater Yellowlegs

Geisenheim, Riesling, and Chardonnay combine for a citrus aroma and hint of green apple on the finish.  A dry white, perfect for sipping on the patio.  Pairs well with seafood and poultry.

2017 Bearly Baco Saignee Rose

2019 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition Medalist

Taken from the free run juice of our Baco-Foch grapes and fermented as a white wine, this dry rose has a sweet cherry aroma but finishes with a cranberry note.  Limited quantities were produced using the saignee method - get it while it lasts!

2016 Red Eft

2019 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition Medalist

An evolution of our Baco Noir-Marechal Foch blend, we have re-named and upsized to the 750ml format. This versatile red maintains the smooth, smoky finish that has made our Baco-Foch blend our best seller over the years.  It can be enjoyed on its own or with a wide variety of pairings.  

2017 Pinot Gris

The only 100% estate grown Pinot Gris produced in Nova Scotia in 2017.  Citrus notes combine with a crisp finish to make this a popular chilled wine on a warm day.  Less than 20 cases were produced!
