Jost Vineyards is nestled in the gentle hills and sheltered coastal inlets of the Northumberland Shore. It is the longest operating and largest winery in Nova Scotia. The winery is a pioneer of the Nova Scotia wine industry, producing distinctive wines and styles which have won hundreds of national and international awards.

     Jost Vineyards create wines for all occasions and every palate – from the connoisseur to the newest wine taster. They take pride in showing that Nova Scotia adds a fresh new dimension to the world of wine. Their winemaking team’s devotion to creating wines that are an expression of their vibrant and nourishing coastal terroir is reflected in their commitment to innovative use of local resources, pride in rural enterprise, and continued investment in the future of the wine industry.

     They are located in beautiful Malagash, Nova Scotia, just minutes off the Sunrise Trail. Daily you can enjoy wine tastings and browsing the broad selection of wines and wine merchandise in the winery boutique. Relax with a glass of wine and charcuterie board or enjoy a hike into the vines while exploring the vineyard trails. From May through October they offer locally inspired gourmet fare at their Seagrape Café. Now doesn’t that sound like the perfect way to spend a day in Cumberland?
