About Tidal Bay
Every wine region hopes to have wines that stand out and get recognized for defining what they do best. In Nova Scotia, our wines have consistently been known for their fresh, crisp and bright style. With this in mind, Nova Scotia winery owners and winemakers decided to develop a signature wine that revealed these characteristics, and so began Tidal Bay.
The name Tidal Bay was inspired by the influence of the sea on all of the wineries located across the province. It is a wine with unique character and brilliantly reflects the terroir, coastal breezes and cooler climate of its birthplace. Although all Tidal Bay wines must follow the same set of standards, each wine is slightly different from one another, and wineries are able to uniquely express their individuality within their Tidal Bay wines.
To obtain the Tidal Bay designation, all wines must be made from specific grape varieties, include 100% Nova Scotia grown grapes, follow a strict set of standards and be approved every year by an independent blind tasting panel.
