Bruce Ewert and his Nova Scotian-born wife Pauline Scott moved their young family to Nova Scotia in 2004 and founded L’Acadie Vineyards in the Gaspereau Valley. Bruce identified that the region had great potential for crafting sparkling wine and in 2008, released the first traditional method sparkling wine in Nova Scotia. Since then, national and international accolades for his sparklings have proven his passion.
The name L’Acadie Vineyards was chosen after the rich farming history of our area. The original name Acadie is credited to explorer Verrazzano who named all lands north of Virginia including the Atlantic provinces Arcadia, after the Arcadia district in Greece meaning refuge or idyllic place.
L’Acadie Vineyards has been certified organic since inception. They are the first vineyard and winery in Nova Scotia to be certified organic and are leaders in encouraging others to grow organically. All wines are made with 100% Nova Scotia grapes.
Bruce Ewert, winemaker and proprietor of L’Acadie Vineyards, is a sparkling winemaker with international experience and proceeded to pioneer the first leading award winning releases. Prestige Brut received a Gold and was Top Scoring Sparkling at the leading 2010 Canadian Wine Awards. Only three sparkling wines had ever achieved gold in the history of the competition. Most recently at the prestigious 2011 Effervescents du Monde Prestige Brut was awarded a silver medal, the only medal for North America.
