Uncompromising sparkling wines from Nova Scotia
In wine as in life, adversity builds character. Vines challenged by weather, water, and the vigneron's shears bear the most flavourful fruit.
At Benjamin Bridge, our challenge was to produce prestige cuvées where none had imagined. The result: world-class Méthode Classique sparklings – born of the Champagne tradition, but distinctly Nova Scotian.
How a love of the land launched Benjamin Bridge
World-class wines from Nova Scotia. Who could imagine? Benjamin Bridge founders Gerry McConnell and Dara Gordon. In 1999, encouraged by a coterie of international experts who noted the uncanny parallels between the breezy Gaspereau Valley and the cool climes of Champagne, the first vines were planted. Their audacious vision has become reality.
