About Us

Sainte-Famille Wines Ltd. is an award winning winery that is located in Falmouth, Nova Scotia – the gateway to the Annapolis Valley.  We opened our doors in June, 1990 and are now 25 years old. Our vineyard is situated on a gently sloping hill overlooking the Avon River Valley. It is one of the warmest vineyard sites in Nova Scotia.

Ninety- five percent of our wines are produced solely from our grapes. However, we do purchase some from local growers. We grow eight varieties of white grapes and four varieties of red. All of our wines are 100% Nova Scotian.
