We're pleased to announce that both our 2021 Mercator Tidal Bay and our sister winery's 2021 Gaspereau Tidal Bay have received gold awards in the 2022 International Canned Wine Competition.
Congratulations to our winemaking team lead by Head Winemaker, Gina Haverstock. We are so proud of the Devonian Coast team who has again demonstrated their knowledge and skill in creating two wines that each showcase the Tidal Bay style but also demonstrate the unique terroir of the different vineyards.
Try them both and discover the difference. Mercator’s Tidal Bay is refined and subtle, reflecting the overarching style that Mercator wines encompass. It expresses delicate notes of lemon curd and apple with nuances of spice and minerality. Gaspereau's is an aromatic-driven white with floral notes and tropical fruit along with a minerality and brightness that persists throughout the entire tasting experience.
Thank you to Allan Green, Competition Director and this year’s panel of judges Robert Williams Jr., PhD., Dan Berger, Brielle Buckler Jonathan Cristaldi, Dennis Doorakkers, Brooke Martin, Ali Nemo, Laura Ness, and Greg Richtarek. Like you, we believe canned wine done well is certainly something to celebrate!

We are thrilled to announce that both Mercator Vineyard's 2010 Fortified Castel and Passito Muscat have been awarded the 2021 Lieutenant Governor's Award for Excellence in Nova Scotia Wine. Both are small lot wines, carefully crafted and rare enough that they are currently available in-store only at Mercator Vineyard's winery boutique.
We couldn’t be more proud of Gina Haverstock, Becca Griffin and the whole winemaking team at our sister winery for receiving 2 gold medals this year. It is truly an honour to receive this prestigious award and we would like to congratulate all the award winners.
