Cable Wine Systems (www.CableWineSystems.com), creators of the most versatile and sophisticated wine racking system on the market, is weighing in on Nova Scotia being proclaimed as the next great Canadian wine region.
The province of Nova Scotia recently announced a $487,960 investment into a wine research lab which will be placed on the grounds of Acadia University in Wolfville. The province hopes to capitalize on the sudden surge of production coming out of the area and compete with other winemaking regions across the world.

“It’s interesting to see how different regions across the country are beginning to take winemaking to another level,” says Janice Bednarz, general manager of Cable Wine Systems. “Wine culture in Canada has grown overall, but not just with consumers. The producers are also stepping up and making a claim to be the creators of quality wine.”
Experts in the Nova Scotia region say climate and physical environment somewhat restricts the region to specialized variations. As a result, producers are focusing mainly on aromatic whites and sparkling wines.
“The nature of winemaking is that it reflects the environment of where it is produced,” Bednarz explains. “Just like vintners in regions in different parts of Europe experience more success with growing certain varieties of grapes, Nova Scotian wine makers must similarly do their best to grow the kinds of grapes that would be most conducive to their climate, soil and growing season in order to produce the best wine possible.”
Bednarz adds that even though geography does play a role in the types of wine that can come out of Nova Scotia, it doesn’t mean that winemakers won’t refrain from experimenting with other blends.
“They are still trying their hand at creating some enjoyable reds. It’s really about figuring out what works and what doesn’t with the terrain throughout the region,” she concludes.
