2022 GGANS Summer Tour

2022 Summer Tour Registration


The Grape Growers of Nova Scotia (GGANS) continues 40th Anniversary celebrations with an in-person Summer Tour on Wednesday, August 17th from 9-5pm. 

This year’s Summer Tour takes us to Hants County’s beautiful and serene Avondale Sky Winery, where the Coutinho family will host us for a special, industry-style Vineyard Tour and Trade Show, featuring select, Live Demonstrations from our Valued Suppliers and Retailers from 1-5pm.

A casual, air-conditioned picnic-style lunch featuring local wines and generous time to socialize and mingle will be another highlight not to be missed.

The day’s festivities will begin at 9am with registration and a private tour of GGANS member Dr. Naeem Khan’s Vineyard, where we’ll also receive seasonal vineyard updates from local researchers and industry experts.

We are excited to see everyone so we hope you can make it out to the tour!
