The grand opening will run from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Winemaker Josh Horton will offer barrel cellar tours between 1 – 3 p.m.
Lightfoot and Wolfville Winery is also the fifth stop on the Magic Wine Bus tour this year.
Owned and operated by the Lightfoot family who have been farming in the Annapolis Valley for eight generations, Lightfoot & Wolfville provides a truly unique farm winery experience.
After planting vines in 2009, the first wines under the winery’s label were released in 2015. Embracing organic and biodynamic agriculture, this estate nurtures, not only 35 acres of vineyard, but also raises heritage breed livestock and grows its own produce for the winery kitchen.
The new hospitality centre features a retail boutique, tasting room, wood-fired pizza oven and patio where guests can enjoy stunning views of Cape Blomidon and the Minas Basin. The underground barrel cellar and marquee tent among the vines provide the perfect backdrop for weddings and special events.
The winery in Lower Wolfville is located at 11143 Highway 1 on the Evangeline Trail. It had its unofficial opening in July.
