Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get an outdoor wine-and-cheese tasting for two at Domaine de Grand Pré in Grand-Pré (a $40 value).
Domaine de Grand Pré rouses visitors with an eclectic collection of award-winning regional wines and local and international cheeses on its sprawling estate. During an intimate outdoor tasting, patrons can dazzle blasé tongue buds with vintage wines, including a Moulin Rouge blend of baco noir, maréchal foch, leon millot, and l'acadie blanc. Ambrosial, exotic cheeses such as comte juraflore and dragon's breath blue cheese complement fruit fermentations like money complements everything. The modern vineyard harvests its signature elixirs exclusively from Nova Scotian grapes, eschewing Old World wines for charming, local varieties that thrive in the native soil and the oceanic climate. Samplers can indulge in a breathtaking view of the Bay of Fundy from a cobblestone pergola, admire Nova Scotian artwork in the wine boutique, or analyze the thematic undertones of the menu at the Swiss-inspired fine-dining establishment, Le Caveau Restaurant. In addition to its classic lineup of perennial favourites, Domaine de Grand Pré also releases occasional limited-edition dessert wines.
