July 6-11 and Upcoming Events
Nova Scotia has now entered Phase 3 of its reopening plans - and that means we are thrilled to welcome visitors from every province in Canada! What better way to celebrate summer than to enjoy a nation-wide reunion! Make Petite Rivière Vineyards one of your vacation destinations - we’re open every day from 11am - 5pm.
This coming weekend, on Saturday July 10th, we’ll have a delicious spread of oysters and scallops catered by our neighbours Osprey’s Nest. Come by and enjoy the beautiful vistas while sipping a glass of refreshing Mimi alongside your meal! Or a crisp glass of Three Churches White Wine. Keep an eye on social media for more details!!!
Next Saturday, July 17th, we host our Weekend in Provence Event! With our Lavender harvest- Our lavender is in full bloom and we’ll have bundles of aromatic lavender, lavender chocolates, and locally made lavender soap, made by artisan Trish Lowthers, who will be on site with her All Lathered Up soaps from 12pm - 4pm. Our featured wines for tasting will be our Rosé trio: Henri, Lulu, and Mimi!
On Sunday, July 18th, in the evening from 6pm - 8pm, we have an Evening in Provence Concert, with award-winning violinist, vocalist, and composer Donald MacLennan performing French Manouche music. Tickets are $30.00, which includes a glass of our Rosé wine! Terrace only, $15.00, weather permitting.
In the Vineyard...
Flowering is done, and the plant is now starting berry set.
The crew is tucking and will be doing that for the next few weeks.
maximizing the sunlight on the grapes
laterals don't grow as fast and big on vertical shoots, as they do on horizontal shoots: less shoot cluster prone to disease development, less vegetative growth = more fruit development and less tractor work ;)
