About Us

Our Facility

The ultimate venue for your next event

Housed in a  renovated 155 year-old timber frame barn that combines historical features with some modern flourishes, we are pleased to invite you to the ultimate venue for your next event.  Whether it’s an intimate dinner with friends, networking cocktail reception, company team building exercise, or book club meeting, Planters Ridge Winery can create the quintessential atmosphere for your event.

Tasting Room

Watch the sunset, or see an eagle soar over the vineyard from the ten foot windows of our tasting room. Enjoy the picturesque pastoral views of the Wellington Dyke farmland that extends to the North Mountain, Cape Blomidon and the Minas Basin at high tide.

Wheelchair accessible space with standing capacity of 70 guests and seating capacity for approximately 30 guests.  Amenities include gas fireplace, two washroom facilities (one wheelchair accessible), fifteen foot live edge oak bar, sink, glass washer, miniature wine fridge, and smart TV with USB outlet.  Cash counter, secondary eight foot tasting bar, and wine display case can be moved as needed to allow for additional space. 

Opportunities for team building exercises include vineyard & barrel cellar tours, portfolio tastings, wine and food pairings, or other educational seminars.

Barrel Cellar

Hold your business meeting or intimate dinner party in the only barrel cellar of its kind in Nova Scotia.  Our glass-door enclosed cellar surrounded by original 155 year-old stone foundation wall provides the perfect conditions for aging our red wines in oak barrels.  Power outlets are available to accommodate electronic presentations.  Ten foot live edge oak table also available to seat ten guests comfortably.  This is where we perform portfolio tastings after private vineyard & cellar tours.


Port Williams or Tuscany?  You decide – the view from our patio has been compared to the rolling hills of Tuscany.  Especially on a warm summer’s evening as the sun is setting behind the North Mountain. On our patio you are surrounded by vines with the same spectacular view as from our tasting room.   Bistro style seating also available.

State-of-the-Art Winery

We have invested in top quality equipment that allows our winemaking team the opportunity to produce wines that are worthy of the Planters Ridge label

Our state-of-the-art winery can accommodate standing groups of up to 70 guests.  Adjoining doors can be open to allow additional space into our Tasting Room.  Discover the production methods that truly make a difference in our wines.

Outdoor Space

A third of an acre grassed lawn overlooking our vineyard provides the perfect location for a wedding ceremony, outdoor picnic, or other outdoor gathering.  Four six-foot picnic tables are available for guest seating. 

Catering Events

At Planters Ridge, we believe in supporting local.  Locally produced ingredients, locally acclaimed chefs, and locally enjoyed restaurants.  We would be happy to recommend a chef or caterer for your event as we do not have the necessary facilities to prepare food on-site.
