A Kings County wine was among the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation’s top sellers last year.

According to a release accompanying the corporation’s annual report, Benjamin Bridge’s Nova 7 was on the best sellers’ list, along with Jost Marble Mountain and Lunenburg County Blueberry.

Nova Scotia wines contributed $9,383,749 to NSLC revenues with more than 74,000 cases – or 7 per cent of total wine sales – purchased.

Local products may be selling briskly, but net sales are down in the Valley-South Shore region by 0.1 per cent. Provincially, retail sales were up for the year at $488.9 million, a 2.9 per cent increase from $475.2 million last year. Wine sales were the only category in which both volume and net sales increased.
