We’re so looking forward to chatting with winemaker Jean-Benoit Deslauriers of the multi award winning winery Benjamin Bridge Estate Winery located in the Gaspereau Valley of Nova Scotia, here are a couple of quotes describing the winery’s bubbly!

"Mind blowing sparkling wines that would challenge any highly – rated French Champagne” 

 Anthony Gismondi for the Vancouver Sun

And Tony Aspler had this to say “They are without question the best sparkling wines I have tasted in Canada"

“It’s a sparkler that rivals Champagne…one of the best Canadian wines I’ve tasted. "
