PRIVATE WINE TOURS
Fox Harb’r private wine tours are hosted by our winemaking partner, Jost Vineyards, in neighbouring Malagash, Nova Scotia, which shares the same latitude as the acclaimed grape-growing regions of France, Italy and Germany. Nova Scotia’s largest and oldest operating winemaker, Jost Vineyards was officially licensed back in 1983 and now encompasses over 100 acres, including a circular tasting bar, built to resemble a large oak barrique.
Your guided, private tour of Jost Vineyards will introduce you to the fascinating process of growing and harvesting grapes and then developing, filtering and bottling wine. Scheduled public and Fox Harb’r event group winery tours are also offered.
GREENHOUSE TOURS WITH FLOWER ARRANGING
Fox Harb’r Resort’s Resident Horticulturalist Michael Stewart, hosts Fox Harb’rs greenhouse tours. In three on-site greenhouses and garden beds we grow our own produce, fruit, and herbs used in the dishes we serve, as well as the plants and flowers found around the resort grounds. Take a tour, pick up gardening tips, and then create a seasonal flower arrangement you can enjoy in your accommodation and take home. Tours available May to mid-September. Approximately 90 minutes, minimum 3 guests, maximum 10 guests.
