Congratulations to Patrick Tremblay (Gatineau, Quebec) – he is the winner of the Good Cheer Trail tour for four from Grape Escapes Nova Scotia Wine Tours. Thank you to everyone who participated this year – we are already planning for next year!

Discover new favourites as you explore the Nova Scotia Good Cheer Trail. Sample locally produced wine, beer and spirits from over 30 locations across the province. Meet passionate Nova Scotia artisans and taste local cuisine paired perfectly with your drink. From Yarmouth to Cape Breton, the trail weaves through stunning landscapes, heritage sites, beaches, cities and farmlands.

With your Good Cheer Trail Passport in hand you’ll be able to chart you own route as you taste your way through Nova Scotia. Trail participants will offer an exciting mix of tours, tastings and special events. Whether you’re interested in trying the latest vintage of Tidal Bay, meeting an award winning brewmaster or sampling a single malt whisky straight from the barrel, the Good Cheer Trail has you covered.


Samuel de Champlain started the Order of Good Cheer in Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1606. It is considered the oldest social club in North America. The purpose was to provide good food, drink and good times for the men during colonization. The Nova Scotia Good Cheer Trail continues that long tradition of hospitality and pride for the bounty of Nova Scotia.

Explore Responsibly

Good Cheer Trail explorers are encouraged to enjoy the trail responsibly with a designated driver, by booking an organized tour through Grape Escapes or Go North Tours or by hopping on the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus.


Launching in partnership with Nova Scotia Tourism Agency (NSTA), Atlantic Provinces Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Taste of Nova Scotia, the trail will officially kick-off on June 1, 2015. www.GoodCheerTrail.comPhoto of: Good Cheer Trail Logo
