Cape Breton Island Wineries
Vineyards in Cape Breton NS
Cape Breton Island is at the eastern end of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. Its Cabot Trail is a roadway encircling the island, passing forests and rugged coastline. The drive skirts Cape Breton Highlands National Park, whose Skyline Trail footpath overlooks the Gulf of St. Lawrence, known for migratory whales. There is currently one winery on Cape Breton Island, Eileanan Brèagha Vineyards. Situated on a 200-acre former homestead in Marble Mountain, the south-east exposure and moderate climate of the salt water Bras d’Or Lakes allows for a longer growing season, while the marble and limestone in the soil provides a unique terroir that adds a distinct flavor to our collection of wines.
