Nova Scotia Cool Climate Wine Growing Region New Publication

Thursday, November 4, 2021

Harvest is wrapping up in Nova Scotia wine growing region. The last month climatic conditions allowed an extension of the growing season which helped to achieve good maturity levels. Currently, most of the grapes are under fermentation, except the vineyards destined for late harvest or ice wine.

In this publication, Perennia wants to share the recent paper published about the terroir study performed in Nova Scotia.

Perennia performed a terroir study in the Annapolis valley from 2017 to 2019, with the main goal to collect data from the grape varieties grown in the province and evaluate them under local conditions for wine production in Nova Scotia. All the results were shared each year of the study through in-person presentations, executive summaries and best practices sessions, with the main goal to improve the vineyard management and produce the best wines!

Recently, we published a paper to present the results of this study, such as grapevine growth pattern through each season, main phenological stages, climatic information, fruit characteristics and others.
