Basin Bliss: a character-filled farmhouse in Lower Canard, with a young vineyard. Situated in Lower Canard overlooking the tidal flats of the Minas Basin, this property is ideal for someone interested in growing grapes in Nova Scotia’s vibrant wine industry.

This 100% Vitis vinifera vineyard has 11 acres under vine and is planted with Pinot Noir, Gamay, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and a small amount of Pinot Blanc. Its gentle, south- facing slope and proximity to the Bay of Fundy's Minas Basin, make it a well-suited site to grow grapes. With its farmhouse, detached garage and matching 2 storey barn, this is a future vineyard owner's dream location. The current dwelling dates back to 1893. The house has been well cared for, maintained, updated and upgraded over the years. From the convenient mudroom you enter into the heart of the home, the kitchen.
