It's here where the elements perfectly align. Gentle southern slopes nurture acres of vines against the backdrop of an ever-changing tidal landscape, rolling hills and the panoramic Avondale sky. Visit us for a unique wine experience in our award winning tasting room and restaurant. Enjoy tastings, tours and lunch at our Winery restaurant D'Vine Morsels. Our small batch wines are crafted with care are sure to please along with our fresh local inspired lunch menu. But don't take our word for it......

Leann was the one who did the tasting for us and we had a great time, she was very passionate about the winery, in a good way. As beer drinkers, it was nice to have someone explain the different wines... More

This remarkable "old church" building converted into the winery"s display and lunch area is worth the visit on it's own merit. The owners have done a remarkable job. Our lunch was wonderful (cheeze and meat board) when coupled with Avondale wine and Tatamagouche Brewery beer. Couldn't have had better service.

Be sure to read up on the history of this winery. The tasting room and restaurant are located in an old church. If the family had not purchased, moved and restored the building would have been destroyed. Be sure to partake in their wine tasting, take a walking tour of their vineyards and eat at their restaurant. All the staff... More

Stopped in for a wine flight. All 5, 3 whites and 2 Reds were very good. The server was delightful as well as knowledgable. Lovely little winery. Nice gift shop. Very reasonably priced.

It is a new kid on the winery block but don't be fooled! This winery comes with such rich history! Not stuffy and snobby like most wineries typically are. The gentleman (Breschen?) who did the wine tastings didn't hesitate to personally take us out for a tour of the vineyard. We tasted each of the five French grapes grown here.... More

This is a unique winery, with the main building being a former church that was transported via boat from its previous location to Avondale. We have visited the winery many times and have enjoyed the wine tasting, food, and service. This time, we had a full lunch whereas before we had just soup. The food, and this was a bit... More

My husband and I stopped in on whim during our drive back from Halifax. We were not disappointed. Although we couldn't bring in our two super well behaved labs, they were able to stay outside near a picnic table while we did a tasting. The staff brought them a bowl of water and snacks. Our 11 month old son loved... More
